    Brilliant stuff Mark, really good online set-up. Man, those photos are inspiring me to get back up to visit, hopefully carrying some tapes to make a film too! Catch up later…

  2. Hi Mark, Just setting up my own blog and inputted “film and scotland” and found you! Hope you well. Congratulations on your move to Orkney. We have friends there and are hoping to take a trip up in the next while, would be good to see you.
