Stòiridh chruinneil na sìde tro phrosbaig nan Eilean Siar le Angela Nica'Ghobhainn. The journey ends in Stornoway. Visiting the golf course, we learn how they keep the greens playable whatever the weather, and find out how to measure the clouds at Stornoway airport. Also, do you know your Viking from your Bailey? Torcuil Crichton explains the shipping forecast.
Stòiridh chruinneil na sìde tro phrosbaig nan Eilean Siar le Angela Nic a'Ghobhainn. We look at our relationship with the weather and take you on an adventure through the Western Isles exploring how the weather has shaped these islands, and how our livelihoods - and indeed our lives - depend on it. We begin our journey in Vatersay and Barra where we visit the site of the Annie Jane shipwreck, stop off at Barra airport and find out how heavy storms uncovered a Bronze Age burial ground. Everyone experiences it. Everyone has a view on it. Everyone talks about it. It's the universal story of the weather.
