Island Solitude: The Summer Isles, Handa and the Shiants


Episode Info

Paul Murton visits the islands lying off the Scottish coast. In this edition, Paul crosses the Sea of the Hebrides to explore the remote Shiant Islands, heads east to the Isle of Ewe and on to the Summer Islaes and the cliffs of Handa. He enjoys a dive at a sallop farm and vists the eerie Island of Gruinard, which thanks to its remoteness, was Britain's testing ground for biological warfare experiments during WWII.
