Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands

Series 4 Episode 2: Bridging the Gap: Scarp, Great Bernera and Scalpay

Paul journeys around the coast of the Long Island of Harris and Lewis, beginning on Scarp, travelling north to Great Bernera, then south east to Scalpay. These islands may seem to exist in the shadow of their of their much larger neighbours, but Paul discovers they have a distinct identity all of their own, as he hears remarkable stories of crofter rebellions, rocket mail and a rich local culture.
