A fantastic glimpse of Kintyre circa 1955. Includes one of the simplest and best descriptions of Kintyre;
"It is 40 miles long and every mile is beautiful"
The film takes a trip along the Kintyre Peninsula, Argyll, Scotland and includes footage at Machrihanish, Carradale, Campbeltown, The Argyll Colliery, The Harbour at Campbeltown, Campbeltown Creamery, Tarbert, Bellochantuy and the Mull of Kintyre to name a few.
Wonderful to see the beach at Machrihanish as I remember it, busy with families enjoying themselves.
Film by Iain Dunnachie, narration by Hugh McPhee.
The film was originally entered in the 'On Scotland' category at the Scottish Amateur Film Festival in 1956.
