    Carve Carrbridge, the annual Scottish Open Chainsaw Carving Competition, attracts entrants from all over the world. Euan McIlwraith follows former champion Ian Chalmers at this year’s event, as he attempts to retain his title.

  • Gundogs


    Throughout the autumn, on grouse moors, at pheasant and waterfowl shoots gundogs will be hard at work. But over the summer their skills are honed in competitions across the country. Back in July Sarah Mack followed the Scottish gundog team as they travelled to Oxfordshire to compete in one of the toughest gundog tests of the year.

    Green Man: A Thousand Huts

    A Thousand Huts is a Reforesting Scotland campaign to promote ‘hutting’ as a means of woodland living, working and learning. The Falkland Estate Centre for Stewardship is leading the way by organising a hut building course to create the first of many woodland huts which will be used for future social enterprises. Euan McIlwraith joins the builders.

  • Snorkelling

    Over the next three weeks Andy Torbet, diver, writer and TV presenter will be taking us on an underwater tour of Scotland using nothing more complicated than a snorkel and mask. This week he’s in St Abb’s, widely held as one of the best shore dives in Scotland.
