Introduction: My Grandfather, aged 27 was holidaying with his family in a hut in a valley among the Scottish Hills and making a home movie of the holiday. The year was 1947. He saw a young local girl and asked her mother if she could be in his film. She said yes. Mary was 17 and they started filming shortly afterwards. In the making of the film, they fell in love. They married and gave birth to my mother in 1948. Grandad built his own holiday hut in the place that they met. With no electricity or water you are left to the green hills to survive. It is a simple place. The fresh burns (Scottish for stream) flow through the valley. We scattered my Grandfather's ashes next to the hut on July 22nd 2010.
