I Know Where I'm Going!
A Celebration of This Well Loved Mull Film
The island of Mull was the setting for this Powell & Pressburger film released sixty five years ago this October. The film needs no introduction to those who know it. If you do not, you are in for a treat.
All are invited to come to a celebration weekend from 15th to 17th October 2010 at the Western Isles Hotel, Tobermory.
The weekend will include opportunities to visit locations where the film was shot with a tour of Moy Castle and Lochbuie as well as the pier at Carsaig. This year we are also planning a trip out to Corryvreckan and a Ceileidh. In addition to talks and showings of the film and an associated documentary, the weekend will offer good food and company.
Bookings may be made via the Western Isles Hotel - Tel: (01688) 302012.
Mention that it's for the IKWIG weekend organised by Robert Beveridge & Steve Crook.
