Join Mark Stephen and Euan McIlwraith for the latest outdoor activities from Shetland to the Borders, plus the key stories for those who live and work in the countryside.

In the first thirty minutes, Neil Sutherland of Makar Construction takes Mark on a tour of his Inverness-shire house, workshop and building project where they discuss Scottish forestry, building materials and eco homes.

Euan talks to farmer and machinery supplier Andrew Connan about CAP payments at the annual Royal Northern Spring Show in Inverurie.

After the news...

Euan is at this week's launch of the new huts planning guide in the Scottish Parliament asking how easy it is to find land on which to build.

Mark visits the Barry Buddon Training Camp in Carnoustie to see a newly re-discovered wartime trench and turret.
The Scottish School of Forestry in Inverness opens its doors to Mark for a look around their campus and courses.

And Mark gives Wendy Price of Transition Black Isle a backie on his electric bicycle as they meet Lizbeth Collie (Black Isle Bikes) and Karen Thomson (Highlands and Islands Enterprise) to discuss a new report about cycling in Inverness-shire.
