Jimmie Macgregor's Wild West Journeys

Duration:
5 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 25 August 2010

Celebrated musician and broadcaster Jimmie Macgregor looks back on his many travels with the BBC by revisiting his journeys through the west of Scotland. In this Zone he travels the length of the West Highland Way in an eight-part series made for the BBC back in 1981. Along the way he meets fellow walkers and local historians and explores the rich natural history of the area along the 95 mile route.

Elsewhere in the Zone, Jimmie introduces two episodes of his series Banks O' Clyde where he trekked the Clyde from its tributary to its final destination in the Clyde Estuary. In these episodes he explores the history of the estuary and hears about curling stone production on Ailsa Craig, links golf at Turnberry and chats to Johnnie Beattie about the legacy of the Winter Gardens in Rothesay.
