Scotland's intense, unique beauty is matched by a vibrant and turbulent history. Thousands have given their lives to this land, yet you can walk all day and never see another living soul. It is a land of lochs, rivers, mists and mountains; where myth and legend embrace each other, never to be parted.

Join us as we travel the land. We'll go to the highland games where it is the men who proudly wear skirts and challenge each other to awesome contests of strength and skill. We'll visit the dark, deep waters of Loch Ness, home of the serpent monster Nessie for more than two thousand years. We will discover where the highland Jacobite rebels of 1745 led by Bonnie Prince Charlie lie buried on remote moorland. We will find out why the French Emperor Napoleon forced the British to create one of the World's greatest feats of civil engineering and how oysters from Loch Fyne could land you in prison with you never seeing your home and family again.

So in this land of deep, dark, still waters, rugged mountains and swirling mists, of dashing tartan and colourful traditions, come and join us as we go in search of Highland Heroes and Whigmaleeries.
