GLASGOW CITY [18:28]
GLASGOW CITY The city that I was born and raised in, Glasgow City is Scotland's largest city and the third largest city in Great Britain. Glasgow city has the best shopping outside of London and is the financial business centre of the UK outside of London. The home to many of the greatest inventors of the Modern World, a very proud bustling city with much student life, shops, pubs, bars and clubs. The city has much style and beautiful architecture and is something I tend to overlook, but one thing I find whenever I hear a foreigner speak of the city is their love for the architecture around them. To me, it's something I am used to seeing, so I can't say I see much of it. In this video I show much of Glasgow at night and day, from the GOMA museum to Princes Square, Buchanan Street, Argyll Arcade, Trongate, and more. Perhaps this video will give you a taste of Glasgow, which is something I wanted to put together to show you the city I was born in. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I would be happy to answer as best I can. Glasgow City has 4 Universities, and many Colleges. And the great thing about Glasgow city is the fact that it's a centre point in Scotland, with easy access to much of the places surrounding, with beautiful scenery from the likes of Loch Lomond, Stirling is not that far, or Edinburgh which is just an hour away from Glasgow on the train. It's definitely a city worth visiting.

1929 Higland Games Banff Springs Hotel Alberta [03:19]
Footage from my film collection I had digitally transferred from way back in 1929 of the Banff Highland Games. Games held at the Banff Springs Hotel. This was a 3 day event at the end of August including Scottish concerts and special Scottish meals at the hotel as well as standard events. There was always a church service conducted in the open air at the Devil's Cauldron conducted by Ralph Connor (Dr. CW Gordon). These were big events in all aspects. Pipers came from across the country and even a few from Scotland. So too with dancers, travelling long distance by train to attend these gatherings. Up to 8000 people flocked to the town of Banff and the Hotel to be a part of this festival, among the most highly acclaimed North American Highland Games in those years.

Tour Scotland video of a passenger train on the Forth Railway Bridge above the Hawes Inn on visit to South Queensferry. This Scottish Inn has connections with the celebrated author Robert Louis Stevenson, who was born in Edinburgh on the 13th November 1850. It is said that he stayed in this Inn and actually wrote part of his famous novel Kidnapped in one of the rooms. Indeed the novel Kidnapped actually includes a passage about the Hawes Inn.
