Back in 1985, the centenary of the unveiling of the Alexander Selkirk statue did not go unmarked. Not only was there a procession down Lower Largo's Main Street, as there had been in 1885, but a new museum to commemorate Selkirk was opened. All this was captured in an episode of the long-running TV series 'Weir's Way' and the museum was officially opened by presenter Tom Weir. Fortunately, someone has unearthed this episode and placed it on Youtube. The images above are stills from the programme but to view it in full see the following two links (as the episode is split into two parts):
The Weir's Way episode covers not only the Selkirk story and the museum (which is no longer in existence), but also looks at Sir Andrew Wood - visiting both Wood's Tower and Upper Largo Kirk. Visits are also made to the Serpentine Walk, Keil's Den and Pitcruvie Castle. If you were there when this episode was filmed, remember the centenary celebrations or have memories of the museum - please add a comment.
