In Pinn: The Movie

"Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle" has its world premiere in Edinburgh on the 18th of August.

Làn fhìrinn na sgeòil. The truth is in the story. When a young man, Angus, visits his dying Grandfather in hospital he cannot hold back his boyhood quest for the truth - the truth behind the death of his parents and the truth behind his Grandfather's ancient, incredible, fearful stories. Stories from the whole swathe of Gaelic history of poisoned lovers, bloody revenge, water-horses and Spanish gold. His Grandfather hijacks Angus' life for one last time leading him to one of Scotland's most treacherous mountains, The Inaccessible Pinnacle, and an ancient truth he never expected to find.

Main site, including trailer, blogs, images, etc. You can even make your own posters.

Hello, hello, hello!

Well, I knew you were a discerning sort of bloke when you bought an Akto, but now I learn that you're reading The Surgeon's Mate in bed! Ha! I'm currently reading The Hundred Days in bed, I'm listening to Master & Commander on my MP3 player as I run (I'm just starting my second run through of the whole series on audiobook) and I've read The Surgeon's Mate about 3 times. Patrick O'Brian is GOD! :) *pants a bit*

Bloody ticks :( I really loathe them. How utterly horrible to see one waving at you in bed! I've not had one yet this year, but then I've not done any walking this year except for 2 weeks in the Pyrenees a fortnight ago.

I wonder what Stephen Maturin would have said about ticks. In fact, I've just re-listened to Post Captain, and there was mention of ticks on Jack when he was hidden in the bear skin as he and Stephen made their way across France to Stephen's home in Spain. It's all coming back to me now :)

It's only a fictional character, PW, nothing to get worked up about :)

I like PoB, but I am a very slow reader, as I tend to re-read pages a lot.

Picked up a piece of Arnywear cloth in Millets today, just in case there's another one lurking in ambush.
