Tour Scotland Video George Arnot Labourer Gravestone Parish Church Graveyard Burntisland Fife
Tour Scotland video of the George Arnot gravestone in Burntisland, Fife, Scotland. The grave of a man who died in 1850 and whose character has been captured in the following epitaph.
His Mind was weak his Body strong
His Answer ready with his Song
A Memory like him few could boast
But Suddenly his life he lost
From the carving of him barefooted and pushing a wheelbarrow, apparently filled with stones, he may have been a labourer.

West Fife, home to one of the world's most famous transport landmarks, the Forth Rail Bridge, has a varied transport history that once included wooden wagon ways, a tram network radiating from Dunfermline, and a stretch of the Great North Road. Industry played an important role in the development of transport and the coal mines of West Fife were served by an extensive railway network, several locos and rolling stock of which are captured here. Agriculture was important too, as illustrated by the impressive, if archaic, threshing mill shown on the front cover. In addition to Dunfermline, places illustrated include Inverkeithing, Burntisland, Charlestown, Cowdenbeath, Rosyth, Saline, Bowhill Colliery, Valleyfield Colliery, Blairhall Colliery, St David's, Limekilns, Glencraig and North Queensferry.
