This rare film, possibly the only surviving film of early skiing in the Lowthers and in the South of Scotland, shows a day of skiing in Wanlockhead in the late 1960s.
The film was taken by the Paul family of Wanlockhead. The Pauls ran one of the several ski tows that operated in the Lowther Hills between the 1960s-70s. Powered by a Morris 1000cc engine, the ski tow which appears in the film took the skiers up Stake Hill, right above Wanlockhead village.
