s2013e7 Part 2: Glen Affric to Tarbat Ness - Adventure Show Special
December 27, 2013
Cameron McNeish describes Scotland's wild places as a 'world-class landscape', and he celebrates this with a new trail linking Iona in the west with Tarbat Ness on the north-east coast. Continuing his journey, Cameron walks the final part of this 250-mile route. Starting in Glen Affric, he travels through some of Scotland's best landscape including Glen Strathfarrar, Strathconon and an ascent of Ben Wyvis. The walk finishes at a Pictish site which has been described as Scotland's best-kept secret, an 8th-century monastic settlement in Easter Ross that was one of the most important artistic and manufacturing centres in Europe.
s2013e6 Part 1: Iona to Glen Affric - Adventure Show Special
December 26, 2013
Cameron McNeish celebrates the best of Scotland's history and landscape with a new coast-to-coast walk across the Highlands from Argyll to Easter Ross. This is a journey into a rich and often turbulent past, following in the footsteps of our ancestors, the Celtic priests, Vikings, fugitives, red coat armies, or even those who earned their day-to-day living here, the lead mine workers, deer stalkers, drovers and hydro workers. In the first of two programmes, Cameron walks the first half of this 250-mile route, from Iona, often called the cradle of Christianity in Scotland, to Glen Affric. Taking in Mull's highest mountain, Ben More, he travels through the Morven hills, the atmospheric Sunnart Oakwoods and into the wild and remote landscape of Morar.
