And speaking of Staffa, the clip below is Fingal’s Cave from the Hebridean Suite by Felix Medelsson. The story goes that Mendelsson having enjoyed his trip to Staffa on a Saturday, returned to his hotel on Iona desperate to develop his musical ideas. Unfortunately the hotelier was a devout follower of the Free Church and banned Mendelsson from playing the piano on a Sunday.
Anyway I don’t often listen to classical music but this is one I play on the MP3 from time to time.

I don’t have info on this one but it looks very similar in style to the Peterhead poster I featured. Obviously from the same series.
Poster produced for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to Helensburgh on the Clyde Coast of Scotland. Artwork by Frank Henry Mason (1876-1965), who was educated at HMS Conway and spent time at sea. He painted marine and coastal subjects and was involved in engineering and shipbuilding. He designed posters for several railway companies.
