A wee interlude and time for a trivial pursuit question.

What was the name of the (fictional) town in Gregory's Girl?

Totally knocked over by the level of cultural knowledge here

The answer is Climackston.

Eh? Whit?

Where was that sign meant to be in the film?

Cumbernauld is not anywhere near 25miles to Edinburgh and far closer to Glasgow.

Yes it's right at the end of the film - it is of course a fictional roadsign which is why the distances are out.

I'm amazed that nobody has connected the name of Climackston to Climaxtown, FFS lads. ::):
