Stirling to Falkirk

Episode 8 of 10

John Sergeant's journey continues. He visits the western Highlands to find out more about a steam ship that has been transporting tourists for over 100 years.

John Sergeant continues his journey around Britain, tracing the footsteps of pioneer photographer Francis Frith and his team who, from the 1860s onwards, took thousands of photographs documenting the rapidly changing cityscapes and landscapes of 19th-century Britain.

Using the beautiful and unique old photographs as his guide, John visits the western Highlands to find out more about a steam ship that has been transporting tourists for over 100 years, and tries his hand at traditional Scottish baking. As well as taking his own photographs of these evocative settings, John also heads off to Stirling Castle, which has recently undergone an incredible restoration.
