  • Print All

Description

A promotional film that shows two young women travelling about Scotland in the Nineteen Seventies using the Highland Board's “Rover” ticket. In this clip the two amorous young men continue to chase our plucky heroines who luckily manage to escape to Orkney where they are able to enjoy a relaxing sightseeing holiday as they always intended.
