Summary

The only film Kenneth Woolsey shot with colour film, of the Inverness area while on holiday in Scotland with his family, Constance, his wife, and Ian, their son. Panning footage across the dam on Loch Affric, and workers on site, opens the film. Views of Loch Ness and Glen Urquhart Castle follow. Footage taken from a ferry en route from Fort William to Oban port, and beach scenes at Narin on the Moray Firth, are also included. Men and women perform spectacular partner dives from a board at Inverness Swimming Pool.
