Johnnie Walker - The Man Who Walked Around the World


An amazing 6 minute short film for Johnnie Walker whiskey featuring Robert Carlyle walking the hills of Loch Doyne in Scotland recounting, in full detail, the story of how the Scottish farmer turned his product into the world famous brand it is today. Other than the great story, it was filmed in one continuous shot. It took Robert 40 tries to finally get it right.

Pollokshaws Toll Booth.  This was built to collect tolls from the newly built Pollokshaws and Barrhead Rd’s. These were both built in 1797 to avoid the steep hills to the north and south of Pollokshaws and to bypass the congested village centre. These roads joined up at the Round Toll, which became a regular stopping place for the Royal Sovereign stagecoach from Irvine and the Levern Trader from Barrhead. The old tollhouse dates from around 1800 and was extensively restored in 1995 with the lighting being added. Interestingly, at one point the toll house had a license and was much frequented, shall we say, by the racegoers of the Shaws races.
