Great piece of deduction.  It is in fact a 1966 BSA Bantam D7 De Luxe.
It was 22 years old when the pic was taken.

Nice one ....
Knew it was a BSA just was unsure which one....
Old boy swore by these and anytime he saw one in his later years it was like porn...
He hated the crotch rocket mentality of the younger generation and indeed had never ridden anything later than early 70 machines.

That was my first bike,had it for 4 years..... and just checked the DVLA website and its still on the road.

Here are a couple of photos of the old Torpedo Range buildings beside Arrochar. It's fenced off but nothing that won't stop a determined explorer.
