A delightful video originally uploaded by Michael Rogge features an American couple motoring through Scotland in 1958. They arrived by cruise ship from the United States, then rented a car and drove from London to Edinburgh. From there they headed for Inveraray.
This video is copied from an 8mm film record and it’s it’s a lovely snapshot of Scotland during the late fifties. At one point we can clearly see the Argyll Arms Hotel as it was 56 years ago. Later, we get a front row seat as the driver overtakes a WM Younger & Company’s Scotch Ales truck. A fantastic find!
