Wild Ireland: The Edge of the World
Colin Stafford Johnson journeys along one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world, featuring the wildlife and wild places that make it so unique.
Colin Stafford-Johnson begins his Atlantic journey exploring the ancient ruins and wildlife of the Skellig Rocks – stormbound ocean pinnacles off the south western corner of Ireland, where early Christian monks built a monastery on the summit almost 1,500 years ago. His journey ends in Clew Bay, an iconic inlet halfway up Ireland’s west coast and the place Colin chose to make his home.
The odyssey continues as Colin Stafford-Johnson completes his journey along Ireland’s Atlantic rim. Exploring the wildlife and mountains around his home inlet of Clew Bay, Colin then heads north for Donegal – golden eagle country – before reaching the island’s northern tip and turning east along the coast of Northern Ireland.
