Hebridean Trail on BBC2 Scotland

BBC2 Scotland will be showing Cameron McNeish’s Hebridean Trail at 7pm tonight (Monday 27 December). In the programme McNeish travels on foot and on bike through the long chain of the Outer Hebrides, from the most southerly inhabited island of Vatersay to the Butt of Lewis in the north.

On his journey he meets people whose families have lived here for centuries, as well as relative newcomers. He explores a landscape full of variety – from the stunning panoramic viewpoint on Eaval’s summit in North Uist, to flora and fauna that must be patiently sought out.

It is, argues Cameron; “a land rich in culture, wildlife and legend. Here, on the extreme edge of Europe, lies an outdoor adventurer’s paradise”. For more walks in the Outer Hebrides featuring some stunning beaches and hill walks including Eaval, see the selection on Walkhighlands.
