Beautiful shots of Sandwood bay, Jim. I was here for the first time summer 2011 and am so pleased I made the effort. Relieved to report that it hasn't changed one iota since your photos were taken - thanks to John Muir Trust!

Warm wishes from West Yorkshire,

Good to hear from you again Pamela after quite a while. I was at Sandwood Bay during my "Grand cycle tour of Scotland" in 1989, and actually camped wild here for a couple of nights. A great place nearly at the top of Scotland! Glad to hear it's still unspoilt. Best regards from SW Ireland - Jim

hi, it is great to see your old slides of scotland ,from the days when you might have only 1 or 2 films per trip and you have to wait for weeks to see the results.please keep them coming.thanks malcolm.

Jim Mills on April 5, 2013

Thanks Malcom. Yes I used to limit myself to about 2-3 films at the most and as you say have to wait quite a while to see the results, unlike almost instant digital photos! How exiting it was though when the prints or slides (as these were) finally arrived, and then you could spend hours pouring over the results to relive the holiday. Best wishes - Jim

hi jim,how many times i would change a film in a hurry, when there was a great view,then move on. only to find out later the film had not taken up on the spool.

Jim Mills on April 6, 2013

Hi again Michael. I used to get a worried about that also, so I would always wind the film tight so I could physically see the rewind crank turning when I turned to the next frame. A guarantee that the film was engaged and winding on properly. One of the downsides of pre-digital! These days the worry is batteries running out too quickly and the memory card being too full!
