Falkirk screensavers

National Mod 2008 has started this week in Falkirk . The Mod is a Gaelic festival of traditional music with a prestigious gold medal for the best in each category . To some ‘The Mod is coming home’ might seem a curious slogan to use as the Mod has never been held in Falkirk before however the slogan arises from the annual Trysts that were held in Falkirk over the centuries where drovers and cattle dealers from all over the Highlands and Islands would converge on the town to buy and sell their livestock. The Mod is Coming Home because the whole concept of the Highland Gathering had originated in Falkirk. To celebrate the Mod , Castle pictures has teamed up with Scottish screensavers to publish a set of photo screensavers of Falkirk. The Falkirk Wheel is a big tourist attraction and one of our new screensavers features the Wheel
