This week on Out of Doors
Fears over the supply of a basic ingredient of animal feed. The Out of Doors team investigate calls from Farmers for a relaxation of EU rules on the importation of genetically modified soya. Also we find out what actually goes into a bag of cattle feed.
Scotland's rural roads in a state of disrepair after hard winter. We get the latest from a Highland Council report on the state of roads in the area. We also hear how potholes formed and what can be done to patch up the nation's roads after the winter. We get expert advice from the Institute of Civil Engineers.
MSP's debate the future of tourism in Scotland this week. We assess how this might impact on rural businesses.
We get the latest on the Bird of Prey Poisonings Map which was released this week, and which showed that despite the efforts of the authorities and others involved in land management, incidences continue to rise in Scotland.
Continuing our look at the geology of Edinburgh, Mark gets a bird's eye view of the city and its remarkable geology from the top of Arthur's Seat.
Further down the mountain, Helen goes in search of toads as part of a special sound and animation project involving autistic children in Holyrood Park.
Finally, Mark checks out the course at this year's Mighty Deerstalker event at Traquair House, trail running full of fun and frolics.
