HMS Unicorn, Dundee. [03:49]
HMS Unicorn was launched into the River Medway on 30th March 1824. The Commissioner of Chatham Dockyard reported to the Navy Board, " I have to acquaint you that His Majesty's ship Unicorn was launched to day from the 4th slip at this Yard." Unicorn represents the last great flourish of wooden shipbuilding, and also illustrates the birth of the iron steamship.

MODEL RAIL SCOTLAND (PART 9) [04:37]
In this part we look at 3 more layouts. Choates Lane, Hyndford & Portchullin. Choates Lane owners i'd like thank in assisting in the shots for filming & showing me round the layout. Set in either east london's industrial area or an industrial area on mainland europe (depending what stock is running). Full length Eurostars are seen running here. Hyndford is set in the Scottish SPT area & a couple of 156's & a 66 are seen here. Portchullin set some where in the highlands, takes us back to BR blue era. The layout has many detailed buildings & great weathering etc. A credit to the layouts builders. In the next part we take a brief look at Bachmann's stand & it's eagerly awaited Blue Pullmann DMU, plus more layouts. Coming next......

RRS Discovery, Dundee, Scotland. [03:16]
"Discovery" had coal-fired auxiliary steam engines, but had to rely primarily on sail beause the coal bunkers did not have sufficient capacity to take the ship on long voyages. She was rigged as a bargue. According to Shackleton, the ship was a bad sailer, and carried too much sail aft and not enough forward; while Scott worried that the design of the ship's hull was unsuitable for work in pack ice. The ship had a massively built wooden hull designed to withstand being frozen into the ice. The propeller and rudder could be hoisted out of the way to prevent ice damage. Iron -shod bows were securely raked so that when ramming the ice they would ride up over the margin and crush the ice with deadweight. The Discovery rolled badly in the open sea where the flat shallow hull, built with no protuberances to work well in ice provided minimal stability in heavy seas. The hull was made from five different types of wood to better withstand the compression of the icepack. The keep was made from the trunk of a single eucalyptus tree. Ballast in the hull was created from old iron cannon balls. Ship was rigged for scientific studies. The metallic parts of the forward part of the ship were made from bronze (non-metallic) to include the crew bed rails and anchor links. The British National Antarctic Expedition was acclaimed upon it's return but was also in serious financial trouble, and so in 1905, Discovery was sold to the Hudson's Bay Company who used her as a cargo vessel between ...

KNOYDART MUNROS - multi-screen ADVERT-FREE mix. [10:00]
Two trips to the 'Rough Bounds' for the three central Munros therein. The remote Knoydart peninsula can only be accessed on foot, by boat or by helicopter! So, by Western Isles ferry to Inverie (on the north side of Loch Nevis at Inverie Bay beneath Sgurr Coire Choinnichean) for Ladhar Bheinn and Meall Buidhe and by Arnisdale 'ferry' to Barisdale boathouse for Luinne Bheinn. The Barisdale Estate lies within Barisdale Bay along the south shores of Loch Hourn on the Knoydart Peninsula and reveals spectacular views over to the Munro Beinn Sgritheall that stands above Arnisdale. It should be noted that it is indeed possible to arrange to get backpacks ferried to Kinlochhourn for the walk back out. From Kinlochhourn the final sequence in this video is an evening at Corryhully bothy within the Glenfinnan Estate on the return home. Years ago, I can remember standing at the summit of the 974m Munro, Beinn Sgritheall (yeah - having followed a Ralphie Storer non-existent path from the lochside!) and looking over to the Rough Bounds and wondering when I would ever get the opportunity to set foot therein. After Beinn Sgritheall we retired to the Glenelg Inn beer garden for refreshments on a wonderful sunny afternoon. But who would have thought that in Oct. 2009 Bin Laden would have been shot near there? Well, the pet stag that curiously had been named Osama Bin Laden and star of BBC's the One Show was finally shot - for becoming to aggressive!!! Our first Rough Bounds trip was by ...
