    Ahhhh, Tillicoultry!! Everytime I hear that name it makes me think of the outlet centre cos that's the only time you ever hear it mentioned. That or the Sterling furniture store. :lol: If the Ochils weren't in the way, I could see Stirling from my house cos I'm on the otherside of them.

    Actually I'm pretty sure all of Braveheart was filmed in Ireland. I know a majority of it was (including the battle of Stirling). In fact, the soldiers you see lined up on the battlefield are Irish army regulars. They would film then all in English army uniforms one day, then the next day put them in kilts and such and film them taunting themselves. Then on the day they filmed the actual battle they would split them up and have tighter shots of the battle. Check out Mel Gibson's commentary on the DVD. That stuff is seriously educational.

    Unlike the hollywood interpretation of william wallace and the whole historic event :p
    Interestingly enough, I live not far from York, which is about where Wallace got to when he invaded England . And where I live Just near Middlesbrough, was once part of Scotland.

    Mind you, York is also where hundreds of jews were burned to death in Cliffords tower, oh and where Dick turpin is buried.

    I'll have to get some shots of the area round here for you yanks to see how beautifull the whole of the UK is.give me a few weeks and I'll get some posted...

    Stockton on Tees UK's widest high street
    Also where johnny walker lived, he invented the safety match, burried in a local church
    Passenger railway was the first in the world, Stockton to Darlington.
    Middlesbrough is just a modern dump with little showing for it, not a huge amount of history as it was a village until the late 1800's

    Whitby, legendary in goth circles as Bram Stoker wrote Dracula here
    Also where Captain cook sailed from, when he discovered Australia and various other places.
    Whitby abbey site...not the current ruins but the site itself is where St Hilda ruled, and she was one of the few that decided Christianity would be the religion of England.

    York is a famous ancient city, dating back to Roman times

    We have the North Yorkshire moors national park.
    Lake district is not too far away.
    We have easy access to the pennines and if you head north for about a 2 hour drive you'll end up in Bonny Scotland approaching Edinburgh.

    Actually it did, my wife snapped it, and then we continued on around the other hill in the back of the picture, all the way up where there is bathroom built into a cave walled by rocks and I used to think it was a shelter from a distance until I got there.

    Camp Muir is only another two miles up, this is where the mountain climbers register with the rangers and sleep to wake and begin their treck to the top in the morning.
