Scotland - Rob Roy MacGregor's Grave [05:58]
This is an older video from 2010. It's not in widescreen or HD but still worth seeing. This one was taken at the grave of Rob Roy MacGregor. We were on a two-day Timberbush Tour into the Highlands. On our way up to Fort William we made this stop at Balquhidder. The man speaking is one of our favorite Timberbush Tours guides, Marty. He is extremely knowledgeable with a very dry sense of humor. Rob Roy is Marty's favorite historical figure and this is evident from his presentation. This stop at Balquhidder was fascinating because it's not the typical touristy venue. There was no gift shop selling Rob Roy knick knacks or other schemes to turn a tourist dollar (or rather pound) just a simple gravesite in a beautiful, rural Scottish churchyard in the village that Rob Roy called home.
Scotland - Culloden Battlefield [03:29]
We were heading back from our three-day Timberbush Tours trip to the Highlands and Skye. Angela, our driver/guide, suggested stopping at Culloden. Since none of us had ever been there before, we all jumped at the chance. We arrived late in the day with just enough time to watch the amazing 360 degree filmed re-enactment of the battle, check out a few of the museum exhibits and walk the battlefield itself. When I got to the memorial cairn I realized it was actually the anniversary of the battle.
Summerlee. Coatbridge, Scotland. [01:22]
Summerlee - The Museum of Scottish Industrial Life is set in 22 acres based around the site of the nineteenth century Summerlee Ironworks. The museum has many attractions for all the family, including Scotland's only operational heritage tramway and recreated mine, with guided tours, miners' cottages, a great all-ages playpark and lots lots more. Admission is free. After your visit to Summerlee, there's plenty more to see and do in the area. You can walk or cycle along the North Calder Heritage Trail, which starts at Summerlee. Or, for a shorter route, there is the Summerlee to Drumpellier walk and cycleway. The Time Capsule has recently reopened after a multi-million pound overhaul and is a great place to let the kids let off steam with its water chutes and flumes. Drumpellier Country Park is just to the west of Coatbridge town centre and has many walks plus a visitor centre and cafe. Coatbridge is about ten miles from Glasgow.
