Episode 4: The People's Lochs

Summary

Paul Murton sets sail through the Kyles of Bute to the Holy Loch and on to Ardentinny, his childhood home overlooking Loch Long. He also discovers a Viking connection in the shape of a vintage sailing boat that takes him to scale the heights of the people's mountain - The Cobbler

Review

Presenter Paul Murton makes a sentimental journey when he returns to his childhood village of Tighnabruaich on the Kyles of Bute where his parents ran a hotel. But it’s a brief stop, as there is a lot to see as he yomps his way on the latest leg of his trip around Scotland’s lochs.

Murton pauses to chat along the way, of course, to various historians and experts, and hears about the arrival of the US Navy to Holy Loch, which was used as a base for its nuclear submarines.

And, inevitably, a blacksmith demonstrates his craft, as blacksmiths are expected to do on every UK television travelogue. I wonder if they’d rather be left alone?
