These ramblers, probably not gamblers, are a long way from home! Members of The Countryside Club, a Scottish organisation which arranged group walking trips, have reached Anglesey and one of their number – pharmacist/photographer David Sime – records the sights for a film to bring back happy memories when screened during the winter. Included are shots of Beaumaris, the Marquis of Anglesey Column at Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll, and South Stack lighthouse, off Holy Island.
