If there is better sport than hunting flushing birds with dogs and guns I don't know what it is. Thanks to Roy for the stories and starting the thread and to Lagopus for the pictures.



I am glad to be here.

There are some good quality prints available of Going North and Coming South, about 22" by 13" published by Malcolm Innes Gallery in 1998. Although I go to Scotland annually (and have been for over 25 years), I have never done the journey by train. Looking forward to this years visit.

Re the trains up to Scotland, I used to own an 1870 Reilly hammergun whose case was covered with old train stickers from the turn of the century. All of the rail companies no longer exist, but it was wonderfully evocative to see those old labels, including one for a local St Pancreas hotel which a former owner had perhaps stayed in prior to travelling North.

GLS yes, that's the infamous Sammie my old [censored] who sadly passed away last year. No-one other than me would even be allowed to approach those birds. I have two other Chessies but they are a bit softer. Sammie was an excellent deer tracker too and would stand and snarl her head off all the time I was gralloching a deer even though we would be miles from anywhere with no body in sight.

John, I will look up about those prints. Thanks for the info. I do have them both as post cards that I picked up from the Railway Museum last year. The paintings there really are something with huge amounts of detail; too much for a small card. I stood for some while studying them. Lagopus.....

This picture from 1895 by George Earl says it all.


Can't remember where I found it but it is a great picture of days past.
