This documentary is one in a series of railroad films that makes a tour of the British Isles. This train ride takes the viewer on board a luxury train of oak, brass, and leather to travel along the west coast of Scotland. The countryside is picturesque, with farms and fishing villages, and lives proceeding at a more relaxed pace. By contrast, there is a visit to Glasgow, the largest city and major port of Scotland. Glasgow sits on the River Clyde, about 20 miles inland, in coal and mining country. The city, noted for its cultural diversity, is both medieval and modern. It is home to the University of Glasgow, established in 1451, as well as art galleries and museums, the Scottish Ballet, and the Scottish National Orchestra. The armchair traveler is treated to the lilt of Scottish music, from the bagpipes to the symphony. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
