Evening at Pennan, Highlands, Scotland


Evening at Pennan 
Highlands, Scotland

Bill Forsyth’s 1983 movie “Local Hero” is one of my all time favorites so I vowed to find the town where it was filmed.  Pennan hugs the cliff on the the Moray Firth, east of Inverness, a tiny town with one street, one road in and out, one pub (not the one in the film, sorry) and one famous red phone booth.  The film’s central theme revolves around becoming attuned to the rhythms of a place so I didn’t feel guilty, standing on this hill for several hours, waiting in the rain until finally the clouds broke a bit and let a glimpse of sunset show through.  Then I went down and had single malt in the pub and counted myself very lucky. Indeed!
