Season 6 (2016)

This is a breath-taking feast of inspiration. Historian Paul Murton takes us to some of the most heavenly delights on earth. He uncovers the past and the connections to the present to show us what makes these islands quirky, surprising and beautiful and reveals what island life is like today. He begins with the scenic Western Isle of Lewis and Harris, then takes us to the famous whisky island of Islay. At Skye we visit the home that inspired the James Bond house in Skyfall. The Atlantic islands - the Uists, Benbecula and Shiants are gloriously windswept and isolated secrets. Paul also travels to the romantic Ewe and the Summer Isles before heading to Fetlar, Unst and Yell, so far north that they were once part of Norway. Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands is a remarkable journey through the world's most picturesque islands and the stories that make them so intriguing.
