5043 "Earl of Mount Edgecumbe" passes Harburn on the climb away from Edinburgh [01:15]
At the end of 3 days in Scotland, Castle Class No 5043 "Earl of Mount Edgecumbe" climbs past Harburn with the return leg of the "Castle to Scotland" railtour. Unfortunately due to dry conditions and fire risk, she is not permitted to do any significant work and the Class 47 behind the tender takes the strain, with a Class 37 on the rear. She couldn't even muster a whistle.

Applecross Adventure [13:17]
BEALACH NA BA Bealach na Bà is a historic pass through the mountains of the Applecross peninsula in Wester Ross in the Scottish Highlands and the name of a famous, twisting, single-track mountain road through the pass and mountains. The road is engineered similarly to roads through the great mountain passes in the Alps, with very tight hairpin bends that switch back and forth up the hillside and have gradients that approach 20%. It boasts the greatest ascent of any road climb in the UK, rising from sea level at Applecross to 626 metres (2054 ft), and is the third highest road in Scotland. The name is from the Scottish Gaelic: Bealach nam Bò for Pass of the Cattle, as it was historically used as a drovers' road. APPLECROSS The name Applecross is at least 1300 years old but is not used locally to refer to the 19th century village with the pub and post office on Applecross Bay, opposite the Inner Hebridean island of Raasay. This row of houses which is often referred to as 'Applecross' is actually called 'Shore Street' and is referred to locally just as 'The Street'. The name Applecross applies to all the settlements around the peninsula, including Toscaig, Culduie, Camusterrach, Milltown, Sand, 'The Street', Lonbain and many others. The three music tracks used on the video were all composed by myself in 2012. They are: "Starlight", "House of Cards" and "Summer Ghosts".

Sailing Dinghy "Sciurus" [02:17]
...a 14 foot Lugsail Dinghy designed & built in 1987 by Richard Pierce and sailed here by the Pierce Family at the 2008 Toberonochy Boat Muster, Luing, Scotland after 'official' sailing was abandoned... the breeze was gusting 30kts according to Commander of the Fleet Brice Avery. The sail is reefed from 120sqft to 80.... Sciurus is well travelled... She has sailed the 70 miles overnight from Craobh Haven to Fort William to the start of the Great Glen Raid (which took another week to reach Fort Rose, another 120 miles). She travelled to Southern Sweden for the Blekinge Raid atop a VW Transporter van! She regularly appears at traditional/wooden boat gatherings, and always performs well among significantly larger boats. On the strength of this film (thanks to John Widdaker!) Richard is confident to offer the design to other builders, along with his 18'6 design 'Scarlet' and 12'6 'Beachnut', both of which have proved themselves over the years. 01852 314 1119 (UK)
