Culloden Battlefield [03:49]
The Battle of Culloden - April 16th 1746 - marked the fall of the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, which sought to restore the Stuart monarchy to the throne. In barely 40 minutes of fighting, the massed army of Bonnie Prince Charlie had been slaughtered by government troops (which also contained Scottish clans) led by the Duke of Cumberland. There was no mercy for the wounded soldiers, many were slaughtered where they had fallen, and those who had managed to flee were hunted down and executed. Bonnie Prince Charlie managed to evade the Government forces, and after five months on the run throughout the Highlands, escaped to Italy via the Isle of Skye, never to return. Between 1500 and 2000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in the battle, while Government losses were lighter with 50 dead and 259 wounded. The aftermath of the battle and subsequent crackdown on Jacobitism was brutal, earning Cumberland the sobriquet "Butcher". The conflict was the last battle fought on British soil. Culloden is near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands.

Lord of the Rings is based in Scotland [01:26]
Ironic but true, Dryden tower is built in a place that was called Paradise in the 18th century just above where the cloning laboratory at Rosslyn now sits. From the apocryphal Book of Enoch, the Enochian fable goes that Atlantis a powerful and magical hitek Empire of which Scotland was a geographical part was once a paradise but pursued fallen arts such as cloning dark hybrids and chimeras then fell into desolation and was then punished by Gods anger. Atlantis became a dry and desolate den of beasts practising fallen arts. Ironically enough the Cloning research labs of mankind are situated also in or near a place that was historically known as 'Paradise'. The only obvious evidence of the old name of Paradise at Rosslyn is that the old placename is preserved in 'paradykes avenue' adjacent to the tower at Loanhead. .. check out the Tolkeinesque Dark tower architectural folly or monument just above the cloning labs. By co-incidence or irony or some dark humour that seems to suggest that our earth was once a paradise and now a dry and barren den with a dark tower - sounds like Lord of the Rings to me !! :) What is JRR Tolkein saying about central Scotland ? In the Lord of the Rings - Aragorn from the Dunedain = name for Edinburgh, Orcs were a Pictish tribe from Fife, Stone of Destiny stone of Erek= black stone of Erec at the paths of the dead, real King Loth of the Lothians = Lothlorien, goblin halls are in Gifford - stewards of gondor = Stewarts/stewards of Scotland. is ...

Ancient Aliens at Gorebridge and Edinburgh [03:42]
You cannot avoid the archaeology in and around Edinburgh were you to go looking for it - typically blueblooded Sumerian reptiles in the glen at Rosslyn about 400 yards from the famous chapel - greys in St Giles Cathedral, as well as a bunch of green men bursting with natural force out of human shape in the arches both at St Giles and over 180 at Rosslyn and counting. Helpfully the local secret societies have secret cyphers etched into the hillsides for all to see, and if you bring your camera, you can snap the local archons, djinn, faeries, greys etc going about their business in the same ways reported in the older stories collected by MM Banks, in British Calendar Customs, vol 1-3, 1937 and by Campbell in Superstitions of the West Highlands, 1902, and by Kirk in his Secret Commonwealth of Elves, fauns and faeries in 1697 - the same tales in Europe were collated by Grimm in 1901 with the Teutonic Mythology. The same hitek chariots and wierd lights that locals in Scotland used to call the Will O the Wisp later dismissed as 'marsh gas' by hopeful scientists but then more fully captured in digital images in the digital media revolution of the 21st Century are now visible - and folks like jackie Gillies of Gorebridge have been filming all sorts of stuff at Gorebridge for over a decade. Famously one of his mastertapes he sent for alleged scientific analysis by a Scottish ufo society came back with the UK soap opera that imitates the status quo called Eastenders taped all over ...

UM! Whisky Tour #66: Lagavulin [05:46]
Lagavulin takes out the fire but leaves in the warmth... and how splendidly it does so... for a heavily peated whisky Lagavulin seems rather smooth in comparison to some of it's neighbours. Founded around 1815, Lagavulin was built by Peter Mackie along the road from Laphroaig and was intended to be an exact replica of it's older sister distillery (Mackie had fallen foul of his partners at Laphroaig and wanted to take them on in the marketplace...). Originally regsitered under the name 'Malt Mill', the distillery became Lagavulin when the stills were shifted into a bigger premises built alongside the old stillhouse which had been converted from an old farm building with the stills made to fit the space... the lyne arms of the stills came at an angle with the roof of the old building, a design borne of necessity yet adding to the character and also undoubtedly to the originality of the spirit. The old stillhouse is now the reception area... No filing inside Lagavulin regrettably... another Diageo solemnity... but another great distillery embraced ;) Next up, a pilgrimage to old Port Ellen...RIP
