    At 6:30 or so, that is Loch Lomond a magical place where my family spent the summers roaming the islands. The hill that Niall is on is Conic Hill, we climbed it on a beautiful day last summer. Such a fantastic, wonderful place.

    So sad that the King of Scots couldn’t have befriended the Douglases and the MacDonalds and made Scotland so strong and prosperous that no enemy could ever touch it.

    Saor Alba gu brath!

    Don’t quote me on this, but I’d say it was the Great Glen, near Ben Nevis and Neptune’s Staircase.

    Thats Conci Hill overlooking Loch Lomond looking wet across the highland faultline, which is quite well depicted by the line of islands stretching west through lower Loch Lomond. If you follow the path down to the shores of Loch Lomond you come to a very nice pub: The Oak Tree Inn. Certainly worth a pint of their Belhaven’s Best

    the BBC has such a talent when it comes to historical documentaries… I wish I could find one such doc on France or Denmark. Tanks for sharing!
