The Winter Solstice is on Saturday so the Out of Doors team will be bringing light into the darkness of midwinter with a live programme from a secret location on the banks of the River Dee in Aberdeenshire... Including breakfast on a bonfire and some live poetry from Gerry Loose.

Also on the programme...

Most conservation bodies in Scotland have a pledge to restore woodland as part of their long-term plans. But is the justification for this based on myth rather than fact?

The farmer selling his produce via a pop-up honesty shop.

Plus, tracking the movements of golden eagle chicks.

And the man who first lifted the Dinnie Stones.
