Using challenging aerial photography, the series shows the islands in a dramatic new light, from some of the remotest islands in the UK, to some that are within easy reach of Scotland s mainland cities. Visiting, among others, the Islands of Skye, Orkney, Islay, Mull and the Shetlands, the series is a fascinating record of some of Scotland's most amazing natural beauty. The series is written and narrated by popular Gaelic broadcaster John Carmichael. John explores the geography and natural history of six different island groups. The series also covers areas of population and uninhabited islands, and buildings of interest such as renowned castles and churches. There are fascinating facts relating to pre-history, and anecdotes of events and people through the centuries.
