Cameron McNeish travels on foot, by bike, by pack-raft and with his beloved campervan, his journey takes him over 300 miles through some of our most impressive wild places.
Part 1: Ben Rinnes to Loch Rannoch
He starts in the whisky country around Ben Rinnes before heading over the wild Dava Moor and into the Cairngorm mountains and glens that have shaped his life. He finishes this first programme in the remote splendour around Loch Rannoch. Along the way, he meets scientists, historians and outdoor enthusiasts, and finds the only railway station in Scotland that hosts regular ceilidhs.
Part 2: Pitlochry to Tomintoul
He celebrates what he says is Scotland’s ‘world class landscape’. From the Falls of Bruar, he heads south east to the magnificent Angus Glens before turning north to Deeside. Finally, to complete a wonderful circle he tramps across the wild Cromdale Hills. Travelling on foot, by bike and taking to the air, he joins a descendent of the travelling folk, a collector of traditional songs and has first hand experience of how illicit whisky stills once worked. And during his 300-mile journey, he meets two people whose lives have been changed by the outdoors.
