ey002n. These gasworks have appeared in many a Sweeney episode though new development is closing in on them.

To my right is the bend seen in the "now" SJ

eye004n. "I watched this film on recent holiday to Mull and found much was located on around Treshnish. Looking at aerial photos I am sure this identifies exactly the contours of those in the film. I have highlighted in red the position of the lighthouse (built specifically for the film) grid ref:- 56°32'37.9"N-6°20'16.4"W.". SJ
