The film “The Dark Mile” and TV

In 2016 Caledonian Discovery’s barge “Fingal of Caledonia”, was used in the making of the film the “Dark Mile”. Starring Rebecca Calder, Deirdre Mullins, Paul Brannigan, Finlay MacMillan and Sheila Hancock, the film will premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival on the 26th of June 2017. It is a tense psychological horror-thriller, with the Caledonian Canal and the Great Glen used as a backdrop.

When she is on tour around the UK she does two things. Firstly, films all the bits between the shows. Secondly always arrives at her next venue, if possible, in a unique way. As we all say in the office there is no better way to arrive than by colourful barge! The series “Burdz Eye View” will be released on ITV in September.
