THEY were the Craiglang codgers who were all but killed off at the end of their hugely popular TV series –only to say farewell to fans in an arena afterlife.

Now it has been revealed where Still Game’s Jack and Victor’s final resting place actually is – as their fully dressed ‘skeletons’ sit on a Scottish hillside.

Still Game’s stars started the long goodbye to their fans last month with the opening instalment of a farewell run of live shows in Glasgow, set in an alternative world to the hit TV show.

After nearly 20 years and 62 episodes seen by millions of fans, the duo were last seen in the final TV episode of the sitcom heading up Ben Lomond before fading away at the TV show’s emotional final, with Victor asking: “Do you think they’ll be wondering where we went?”

But the pair were reunited with their departed pals from the Clansman for a fun-filled farewell fling masterminded by creators Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill for a 15-show run at the SSE Hydro.

They are reincarnated in surreal style for the farewell performance where thousands of fans joined them for nearly two hours in the afterlife.

Producers needed some film footage to drop into the stage show – of Jack and Victor’s skeletons out in the wilds. And it has been revealed that that scene was shot at Lang Craigs – the mix of ancient woodland, sheltered glens, jagged outcrops, newer plantations and rugged moorland which lies at the foot of the spectacular Kilpatrick Hills.

By coincidence, the location is a name reversal of the beloved sitcom stars’ home in Craiglang.

The “resting place” was revealed by the charity Woodland Trust Scotland, who own the woods and helped producers achieve their plan.

Filming took place just past the welcoming cairn at the site entrance, on the right fork of the path, for fans wanting to pay their respects to the fictional pair.

Woodland Trust Scotland spokesman George Anderson said: “We were delighted to help, and it is an honour to play even a small part in the story of such a Scottish institution.

“We were sworn to secrecy about the filming until the stage show was over. Hopefully its status in Still Game history will bring more people this way.

“It offers superb hiking and stunning views of the Clyde, Dumbarton Rock and Ben Lomond. Like all our sites it is absolutely free to visit.”

Still Game producer Michael Hines said: “It’s been a long journey and one of the last filming days we had on Still Game was achieved with the help of The Woodland Trust.

“They were brilliant. I can’t thank them enough and it’s a fitting resting place.”
