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


Between 6.30 and 7.00 am on Saturday, Euan McIlwraith looks at the impact of the coach tour industry on rural economy and asks if the sort of image it conveys of Scotland is the way we would like to see ourselves.

After 7 on Saturday and at 11.05 on Sunday, is there one place you've always wanted to go in Scotland, but never quite got there? That's the question we put to ourselves and some of our colleagues on BBC Radio Scotland this year. So instead of just thinking about it, we did it! In this special feature, we bring together Mark Stephen and Helen Needham climbing Suilven in Assynt, David Miller visiting St Kilda, Pennie Latin taking the hard route up Ben Nevis, Gary Robertson walking a section of the West Highland Way and Euan McIlwraith fulfilling a lifetime's ambition to vist Mae's Howe in Orkney.
