Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


The second part of our special series presented by Mark Stephen, following the route of David Balfour and Alan Breck Stewart in Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Kidnapped'.

We begin at Glencoe, and the start of the 'Flight Through the Heather', as our heroes cross some of the wildest land in Scotland in an attempt to avoid the authorities after they are implicated in the famous Appin Murder.

So over the Paps of Glencoe and to the vast wilderness of Rannoch Moor. Then to the munros around Bridge of Orchy, before dropping down towards the Lowlands at Balquhidder. Over to Stirling Bridge, and then along the Forth, until they cross by rowing boat to the south bank, before finally parting at Costorphine in Edinburgh.
