Can you believe that Colin was in Florida in a kilt.

The location is Mt Dora, Lake County, Florida just before Colin hopped on a train to play at a Celtic Ales and Brews event.

This is was a wonderful tourism initiative for the area.

And the train reminded Colin of being back in Scotland and travelling on the West Coast line from Oban to Glasgow.
