Grand Tours of Scotland's Lochs

Series in which Paul Murton takes a tour of Scotland's lochs. Paul views breathtaking scenery among the lochs and mountains of Wester Ross. Speaking to locals, he discovers that the loch-side communities were only finally connected by road in the 1970s. Before then, boats linked people who lived an almost island existence. Paul borrows a bike and cycles over the infamous Bealach na Ba, one of Britain's highest and steepest mountain passes, before reliving the glory days of the Kishorn oil rig fabrication yard, which in the 1970s built the world's biggest movable structure. Journey's end is on an island in Loch Carron with a curious connection with Peter Pan.
