Scotland’s best-known outdoors man, Cameron McNeish, undertakes a 150-mile journey through some of the least visited parts of our country from the southern end of Sutherland to the northern tip of the Orkney Islands.
Ch1. Dornoch Point to St John’s Point
Travelling on foot, by bike and with his beloved camper van, Cameron begins his journey in the cathedral town of Dornoch before heading up the eastern coast and into the remote flow country of Caithness.
Ch2. The Orkney Islands
Cameron celebrates what he triumphantly calls our ‘world class landscape’ as he explores lesser-known aspects of six Orkney islands. His guests include those whose families have lived here for generations to relative newcomers who have made the journey north to become part of a vibrant community. No visit to Orkney would be complete without exploring the rich archaeological remains found here, but Cameron also meets two exceptionally talented traditional musicians; discovers why these islands are so environmentally important, and spends time with a former lighthouse keeper turned beachcomber and a visitor who is attempting an unusual world record.
