Abington. Castle Hill. M74. Upper Reaches of the River Clyde.
A rare day out with Alex and a hill for a change. As I get older, left to my own devices, I'm more interested, on solo trips, to do coastal walks, lower level tours, or visit interesting urban areas rather than mountains. Although I still enjoy them I really need company to motivate me towards the extra effort to go up them and unlike me, Alex has never deviated from a love of hill walks. To the point where he rarely suggests anything else, with me at least :) Above is Abington village, right beside the busy M74, and the starting point for our walk.
When I put a video on here I always try to make it a visual extravaganza. This is a higher level again in that respect. Not only an original song but one that The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac or the Rolling Stones would be proud to call their own. Too often in this world though great songs or beautiful artwork can easily slip by unnoticed, treasured by just a few.... and I wouldn't have it any other way... as then it's extra special. Alex would no doubt consider this video 'weird fantasy crap.' but I like it.
A breathtaking visual journey best watched full screen.
