Grand Tours of Scotland - Series 1

About the show

For centuries, "north of the border" had been regarded as a place to avoid and early travellers complained about the savage terrain and uncouth habits of the natives. To find out what changed to make Scotland an internationally celebrated tourist destination Paul recreates six journeys suggested by a well thumbed copy of "Black’s Picturesque Guide to Scotland" and follows in the footsteps of the first tourists to come here.
