Coming Round at Calum's.
Calum was from Rathsay, an Island off Skye and the road was from Arnish to the main road, about 2 miles. He was awarded a British Empire Medal for his efforts and he lived from 1911-1988. The road was built in the 70s, I think. He said someone called Calum (whom I have forgotten) spent years and years building a road, and he finished building it and died the week after. Decided not to risk it and turned round, with some difficulty. Looking at the map later we realised that must have been the start of Calum’s Road - should have driven down it on principle - next time maybe :), Posted by Edgar Bolton 9 years ago. Strathspey or March?

Kennedy won a gold medal at the Mod (Scotland), singing in Scottish Gaelic. His first major success outside Scotland was his winning the World Ballad Championship in Moscow in 1957. He had his own television programme, 'Calum's Ceilidh' and was voted "Grampian TV Personality of the Year".
The BBC produced a programme in the early 1980s called Calum Kennedy's Commando Course, which documented (in hilarious fashion, although this was originally unintentional) a disastrous tour around the Scottish Highlands in an old bus. As more and more of his cast left the tour, a red marker pen was shown erasing them from a promotional poster. Kennedy was not happy about this programme being shown, as he felt it ridiculed him, but it has since gone down as a piece of classic television. He died, aged 77, in Aberdeen.
