Kilchurn Castle is lovely, and not a long way from Ben Cruachan (underground pumped storage power station) - Jim - and somewhere else we won't have time to visit on the North 500 !

Just a few more, to whet the appetite . . .

Chris one of those Scotland photos was "The Old Man of Hoy".

I well recall from the 1960's being fascinated with the Television Coverage of the Ascent of the Old Man of Hoy by Chris Bonnington and others.
from wiki
From 8–9 July 1967, an ascent featured in The Great Climb, a live BBC three-night outside broadcast, which had around 15 million viewers. This featured three pairs of climbers: Bonington and Patey repeated their original route, whilst two new lines were climbed by Joe Brown and Ian McNaught-Davis and by Pete Crew and Dougal Haston.
He did it again when he was 80!

That's the famous "Claude the Butler" from Frome got mentioned here on the "I-Spy Citroen H-Vans" thread, and at the time also had a Renault Estafette (Esther) in their fleet.

Re: Picture(s) of the day..Gibbo Special!

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

In homage to Gibbo's mention of Car and Driver Magazine fro the USA, and a small ad for his Rolls Royce this may be of interest...

Its a gallery of 121 covers of Sportscar Illustrated/Car and Driver from the 1960's.

http://www.caranddriver.com/flipbook/ge ... -the-1960s

Who knows Gibbo may even be able to locate the cover for the magazine which contained his small ad!
