Duration: 55 minutes

Ben Fogle goes on a journey through one of the wildest and most impenetrable landscapes in Britain.

At Chapeltown, Ben learns how the production and trade in illegal whisky was rampant in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Next he heads for the Caledonian Forest, home to 200 pairs of breeding osprey, and after climbing the mighty Cairngorm itself, in the company of two junior rangers, his journey ends at Newtonmore, with a traditional game of shinty.
