Duration: 1 hour

Scotland's well-known walker Cameron McNeish explores one of the most diverse landscapes in Europe. On a newly developed 250-mile trail, he travels on foot and on bike through the long chain of the Outer Hebrides, from the most southerly inhabited island of Vatersay to the Butt of Lewis in the north.

On his journey he meets people whose families have lived here for centuries, as well as relative newcomers. He explores a landscape full of variety - from the stunning panoramic viewpoint on Eaval's summit in North Uist, to flora and fauna that must be patiently sought out.

It is, argues Cameron, 'a land rich in culture, wildlife and legend. Here, on the extreme edge of Europe, lies an outdoor adventurer's paradise'.
