Review

As TV viewers, we’ve previously withstood Extreme Makeover and Extreme Fishing. Now get ready for… extreme villages. Penelope Keith is riding ferries, climbing mountains and skirting lochs this week as she visits remote, inaccessible or just plain fascinating places in Argyll and Bute. The island of Easdale in the Firth of Lorn, for example, doesn’t have any cars or roads, although its pulse quickens once a year when a flooded slate quarry hosts the world stone-skimming championships. Plus, shinty in Tighnabruaich, Viking celebrations in Tarbert and the stunning marble at Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute.

Summary

Penelope Keith seeks out remarkable communities in Argyll and Bute, where she learns about the local Viking saga in Mull, and explores how the Crinan Canal created one of Scotland's most beautiful short cuts. The presenter also visits Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute, watches a game of shinty in Tighnabruaich, and visits the island of Easdale; a place without roads and cars.
