Just got back from a gold panning trip in the campervan up to Tyndrum, Scotland, a 500 mile round trip. Went for 4 days and encountered all weather conditions from sun to blizzard -8c temps but had a great time, found some nice bits of gold and the van didn't miss a beat. I made a little video of the trip away, showing some of the gold panning too for anyone interested:

Good video goldgrabber showing how you go about getting some gold in Scotland, the only problem I have is it looks way to cold for me, but keep up the great work.

cheers dave

Interesting videos Goldgrabber,
Will be visiting Scotland in August but time won't permit getting down and getting dirty or cold Brrrrrrrrrrr!
Think we will stick to the Ozzie prospecting. (Heat, sweat & flies. Very Happy )

well I hope to get a trip to Oz at some point as a friend has recently moved over there so now I suppose I have a reason to travel half way around the world, in the mean time, here is the final day of my trip with the final gold clean up at the end
