Scooting about Scotland

I thought I'd posted this before, but it must have been on a forum. Nice bit of video of a scooter rally in Scotland in 1959

First thing to mention is that this isn't in the Highlands (far too far South) - in fact, most of this is within about an hour of my house. Strange to see so many familiar places, but with very little traffic and much narrower roads.
Notice how the sound and vision are out of sync at the beginning. The piper is walking normally, but the sound is much faster. Sounds like some sort of 'techno bagpipes'!

  1. Interesting film, good to see what some of the places I pass through looked like 50 odd years ago.
    Right here's an idea,we could re run the route on our bikes next year,say around Easter?

    1. Sounds like a plan. OK, who else is in?

    2. As long as you bring the tea and biscuits.

  2. If anyone's near Coventry in the next couple of months, this looks worth a visit: http://www.transport-museum.com/events/event/122/scootermania.aspx
