Bailtean Fraoich is a Travel programme.


Bailtean Fraoich

Heather Dewar explores the Bays of Harris, discovering from crofter and seaman Bannatyne MacLeod that because it is more rock than vegetation the land has been a challenge to crofters for generations. In the villiage of Manish, she meets with Donald MacDonald who explains why, in 1937, his family, along with many others, moved away to the west side of the island. Hamish Taylor once operated sea tours along the east coast of the island. He comes out of retirement to take Heather to one of his favourite spots - Geodha an Sgadain - where there's a spectacular and dramatic sea cave.
