Synopsis:
Imagine living in a picture perfect thatched cottage near it's own white sand bay on a string of islands packed with some of the most remarkable wildlife in the British Isles. Well, that's what marine biologist and diver Monty Halls is doing as a volunteer wildlife ranger in the Outer Hebrides. After a winter back in Bristol, Monty is restless for the freedom he and his dog Reuben enjoyed last summer on the beach in Applecross in the first series of "Monty Halls' Great Escape". The West Coast of Scotland changed his outlook on life and he has a genuine longing to go back. So Monty and Reuben are heading north again to the Hebridean Islands of the Uists and Barra.
And this time he has a job to do, resurrecting a wildlife ranger post that disappeared due to lack of funding six years earlier. The Outer Hebrides is a near mythical set of islands, with wildlife that is renowned throughout the world. It is his job to travel the length of the western isles, to seek out and experience the very best encounters, and to travel into the wilderness that is the Atlantic Ocean. Here he explores the Monach Islands - home to 20,000 grey seals - before pushing further out to the great, dark mass that is St Kilda, the only double World Heritage Site in Britain. But will the dream job live up to expectations? Monty is working for a group of islanders who will want to see results, and he will be staying long into the winter. Living on a group of islands anchored in the North Atlantic, he can expect conditions quite unlike anything he has experienced in the south. This series is the story of the trials and iations as he attempts to resurrect the Ranger iosition, and follows the journey of one man (and a dog) through one of Britain's most beautiful landscapes.
