Very sad to hear of the passing of John McDonald, Govannen's first ceilidh caller. A great character and a man of great energy and fun. Govannen ceiliedhs would not be what they are today without him. Thoughts go to Isobel and the family.

Today involved an expedition in a historic disused railway tunnel - one of the first - engineered by Robert Stephenson opened in 1832 by Stephenson's Comet. It was a fun afternoon. You can only travel 400meters in - when we were that far, the guides played a recording of an old steam train to give you an idea of what it was like in use.
