Above the Highland Line
pp. 26 - 29.1952?

A printed copy exists in the National Library of Scotland, comprising pages 26 - 29 of an unidentified publication. From internal evidence, this appears to have been commissioned by the Scottish Tourist Board, and may have formed part of a publicity brochure. An approach to the Tourist Board has failed to trace but, from references to a hydro-electric scheme believed to be that of Glen Affric, this must have been written around 1952.

Unpublished

This article later appeared in: The Man Who Came Back | M. McCulloch, ed. | Polygon | Edinburgh | 1991 | pp. [91] - 92.

Typescript held at the National Library of Scotland. This piece was written in honour of Christopher Grieve's honorary doctorate at Edinburgh University. It seems probable that this was, in fact, the text of the B.B.C. programme of 3rd. July 1957 entitled "The Indivisible Man - Men of Mark" but, as the B.B.C. hold no script, this cannot be confirmed.

The Long John Story
Long John DistilleriesGlasgow
7th. October 1960

This booklet was written anonymously but a copy of a typescript is held at the National Library of Scotland. It was originally produced as the official programme for the opening of Seager, Evans Ltd (now Long John International Ltd.'s) new malt distillery at Tormore. The text continued to be incorporated in the Company's publicity material for a number of years, but has now been superseded. When Tormore Distillery was officially opened a "Time Capsule" in the form of a pot still was buried in the forecourt. This contained: a recording of the chimes used in their clock; a tregnum of Long John whisky; a treatise on how scotch is made; a history of the whisky industry; names of plant employees; an American dollar; the names of all the Scottish clans; and samples of grain, water, peat and cask staves. It is believed that a copy of this booklet is also included.
