And Euan McIlwraith finds out about the young apprentices who will be helping to clean up Scotland's canal network

We'll also hear from the man who's climbed Ben Lomond more than 2,500 times

Mark goes canyoning down a spectacular hidden gorge just a few miles north of Glasgow

One of Scotland's oldest outdoor activity centres celebrates its 50th anniversary

Plus, why the number of kestrels in Scotland has halved in the last 20 years
