Portobello Beach wins a Blue Flag.mp4 [01:47]
Keep Scotland Beautiful is the charity that's at the heart of the Scottish Government's vision of our enjoying a cleaner, greener, safer and fairer Scotland. It's been operating now for over 40 years, moving on from its initial campaigns to clean up the country to a new focus on the environment, sustainable development and community engagement. One part of its responsibilities is to award the "Blue Flag" to the best beaches and shore lines around our coasts. The latest to receive the accolade is Portobello, otherwise known as Edinburgh's Seaside.

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".
