Part 1

Episode 1 of 9

First of a two-part documentary in which Cameron McNeish journeys up the western seaboard. The first half of the journey takes him from the Mull of Kintyre to Loch Awe.

Scotland's best-known outdoors man, Cameron McNeish, journeys up the western seaboard from the Mull of Kintyre to Mallaig. Travelling on foot, by bike, by pack-raft and with his beloved campervan, his journey takes him over 200 miles through some of our most impressive wild places. Along the way, he meets an artist, a storyteller and a ghillie. And most surprisingly of all he discovers how our ancestors created their music.

Cameron starts on the very edge of Scotland, the Mull of Kintyre, before heading up the long and winding road made famous by Paul McCartney. He boards a restored fishing vessel for a trip on that feat of engineering, the Crinan Canal, and explores the ancient monuments around Kilmartin. He finishes this first programme quite literally on the waters of Loch Awe.
