Achmelvich Beach, Sutherland, Scotland

from 25.00

Back in 1983, I went to the cinema to watch a film called Local Hero starring Burt Lancaster as oil rich tycoon, who wanted to purchase a town on the north western coast of Scotland and it's surrounding area to make way for an oil refinery.

The setting of the film left an indelible mark on me and although it was set just down the road at Camusdarach, just for these moments at Achmelvich I just could just imagine Burt Lancaster, Peter Capaldi, David Puttnam et al going about their work.

Interestingly enough the film is about to premiere as a stage musical - with the original music of the then aspiring Dire Straits. The soundtrack - Going Home is, to this day an all time classic and is the last scene in the film as the pay phone rings and rings and rings - no deal.

This image demonstrates to me the vast open beauty of this section of coastline....
