1. Drifting Away / The Roof of Scotland: Torridon and Applecross
Covers the Applecross - Torridon region of the Western Highlands, a stunningly beautiful area. It is seen as the golden eagle views it, or from the basket of a hot air balloon. This is a programme of the Cairngorms, the highest plateau in the British Isles. The journey takes you round the castle-studded perimeter of this elevated roof then into the very heartland of the mountains, now a winter playground.
2. Land of Mountain and Flood / Everlasting Visions : Lochaber / Loch Maree.
Embraces the wild country of Lochaber, the Ben Nevis area, and the territory to the west and south along the fragmented Atlantic seaboard. From the summit of Ben Nevis, the highest point on the British Isles, we wing our way to the most westerly point of mainland United Kingdom - Ardnamurchan. We also follow the Great Marquis, a remarkable and romantic steam locomotive as it huffs and puffs to Mallaig on one of the dramatic rail journeys in the world.
3. Skye High / Sands of Time: Island of Skye and North-West Scotland.
There is something magical about the island of Skye. It appears to draw you irresistibly into its very heart with its turbulent history and jagged scenery. We do go into its very heart, as only the eagle (or helicopter) can, to witness first hand the grandeur of this fascinating place. The graphic here shows a piper on the Cioch, Cuillin, Skye.
4. Palin's Progress / Glen of Weeping: Aonach Eagach Ridge / Glencoe: Commentary by Michael Palin and Hamish MacInnes.
This is the journey of that great traveller, Michael Palin crossing the notorious Aonach Eagach ridge in Glencoe, the narrowest ridge on the British mainland - and in winter. With his son Tom and Sherpa guide, Ang Pherba, Michael displays the true colours of the intrepid explorer in the teeth of adversity.
