From Foula to Fair Isle - ep1
First broadcast BBC1 Scotland September 23rd 2013
In the first episode of Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands, Paul Murton sets out to visit the myriad of islands that hug our coastline. He heads straight for Britain’s two remotest island communities, Foula and Fair Isle in Shetland. Paul makes a nerve wracking visit to "Da Sneck o’ da Smallie" – a ravine in the cliffs of Foula which leads through to the island’s Atlantic shore. On Fair Isle, Paul attempts to spot rare birds before meeting some of the knitters behind the beautiful patterns which have made Fair Isle world famous.
