Join Mark Stephen and Euan McIlwraith for the latest outdoor activities from Shetland to the Borders, including a look at upcoming changes to airgun legislation.

Euan and Mark take a look at upcoming changes in air gun legislation and the impact they will have on people who use them responsibly.
We talk dairy as Mark and Euan chat to Jane Davidson from Glen Urr about her family dairy farm, ice-cream production, and the price of milk.
We also hear from journalist Tom Levitt about buying milk directly from farmers to ensure they get a fair price for their products.
Mark heads to Bute and finds out how to start a brewery with Aidan Canavan and takes a look at the regeneration of historic Rothesay.
Euan is near Hawick watching trail hounds race. The sport involves dogs running around a cross-country course marked by an aniseed and paraffin trail and is unique to the Border communities in Scotland and England.
Claire spends time with environmental charity Wild Things and joins a hogweed management expedition to find out more about their work.
