Sunday Scans

An entry to Sunday Scans, a "weekly meme dedicated to scanned pictures, anything scanned welcome".  

I've gone way back in time for this photo, my teenage self has written on this slide "how many people can you get on a trig point?".  The answer is in this case four, which I think is very impressive. I have no idea which high point this triangulation point is located except that it is somewhere on the Isle of Arran in Scotland.
I only took two photos on this day (so unlike my digitally equipped self) and this is the other one, on which I have helpfully written," Looking towards the hills, Sunday Walk", so no clues there.  My friends and I spent two weeks on Arran in August '69, which I remember as being wall to wall sunshine. If you are wondering whether we could have squeezed another person on the top of the trig point perhaps I'll show you the size and type of all Ordnance Survey triangulation points.
 I'll confess this one is a digital photo, and it is in my home county, not Scotland, but I don't think I have delved far enough down in my old slides and photos to find anything else.

Fun! That looks like a beautiful place. I'd love to visit some of the Scottish Isles sometime, but I wouldn't expect a lot of sunshine. Thanks for participating in Sunday Scans.

Oh you wild crazy kid ;>)! That looks like a very fun meme; scanning some more of my old pix is one of my goals. Someday.

I can remember doing silly things like that as a teenager! We put 15 people in a phone booth once, and crammed 20 into a VW Bug. Sigh.

These are wonderful pictures for Sunday Scans!
