Roads Less Travelled Vol 3 - The Heart of Scotland Scotland’s best known outdoors man, Cameron McNeish, is celebrating the very heart of the country. In a circular route full of variety and interest he travels over 300 miles on foot, by bike, with a pack-raft and, of course, his beloved campervan. It’s a journey that begins in early spring; finishes in the glorious colours of autumn and takes him through some of our the nation’s most spectacular wild places.
Cameron starts his journey in the whisky country around Ben Rinnes before discovering that Dava Moor - a place many people pass through but few stop to explore - is full of history. Then it’s the Cairngorm mountains and glens that have shaped his life. Heading west he celebrates the remote splendour around Corrour and Loch Rannoch - as wild a country and you’ll find anywhere.
Making his way south and east he stops off at the Falls of Bruar, before tramping the magnificent Angus Glens - one of Scotland’s best kept secrets. Finally it’s north to Royal Deeside where Cameron takes to the air for a different view of this landscape, and to complete a wonderful circle, he explores the rugged Cromdale hills.
Along the way, he meets scientists, historians and outdoor enthusiasts and finds the only railway station in Scotland that hosts regular ceilidhs. He joins a descendent of the travelling folk, a collector of traditional songs and has first hand experience of how illicit whisky stills once worked. And during an epic journey, Cameron talks to people whose lives have been changed by the outdoors.
Running time: approximately 117 minutes.

Take A Hike Take a Hike with Cameron McNeish
The Story of Scottish Walking with guest appearance from Sam Heughan, star of Outlander
Why walk when you can ride? In an Adventure Show special, one of Britain’s best known walkers, Cameron McNeish, investigates our deep seated passion for travelling on two feet. He explores a history that stretches back through the centuries and why this form of travel is embedded in the our national psyche.
More people are walking than ever before – double the number of people who swim and three times as many who cycle.
But there’s more to it than simply statistics. Scientists have shown that the chemicals released even on a short wander can improve wellbeing and change your life. For some people walking isn’t simply a casual stroll but has literally become their life. These enthusiasts trek for thousands of miles and are on the trail for month after month.
In this highly acclaimed programme Cameron explores how the First World War and the Great Depression fostered the growth of outdoor clubs and meets a variety of pedestrians including long distance guru Chris Townsend, Professor Nanette Mutrie MBE, Chair in Physical Activity for Health at Edinburgh University and Sam Heughan who plays Jamie Fraser in the hit series Outlander - someone who’s as passionate about walking as he is about acting.
Running time: approximately 56 minutes.

Cameron McNeish's hugely popular television films celebrate the best of Scotland with a spectacular route by campervan, packraft, on bike and foot through Scotland’s magnificent West Highlands. Take this journey slowly and enjoy every minute. It is an exploration into the hidden corners of what Cameron says is a world class landscape and an opportunity to meet some of the people who live and work there.
Cameron’s expedition starts 20 miles south of Oban. He visits three stunning, but lesser known islands - Luing, Seil and Lismore, before winding his way through one of Scotland’s most famous landscapes, Glen Coe. Venturing west he meets musical legend Fergie MacDonald, universally known as the Ceilidh King. In a journey full of surprises Cameron heads for the rugged lands of Moidart before taking to the water at Arisaig with expert kayaker Lizzie Benwell for a paddle round the dozens of skerries that make this part of the west coast so distinctive.
The final part of the journey explores the finest parts of the west coast: a visit to the remote Sleat peninsula of Skye where 1,000 people still live; a walk into the rugged Kintail mountains with National Trust for Scotland ranger, Willie Fraser and then on to the wild coastline of Torridon with Lord Smith of Finsbury, who was the first MP to climb all Scotland’s Munros. The final leg sees Cameron on the long shore of Loch Maree and its little visited islands, before investigating the isolated Melvaig peninsula. Journey’s end is high above Ullapool.
This is a revised version of the programmes first shown on BBC Scotland.

Roads Less Travelled Vol 2 - Roads Less Travelled Vol 2 - Sutherland, Caithness & Orkney
Available now!
Scotland’s best known outdoors man, Cameron McNeish, undertakes a 150 mile journey through some of the least visited parts of Scotland from the southern end of Sutherland to the northern tip of the Orkney islands. Travelling on foot, by bike and with his beloved campervan, he explores the culture and history that has shaped his homeland and celebrates some of the finest landscapes to be found anywhere.
Cameron begins his journey through eastern Sutherland before entering the wild open spaces and remote flow country of Caithness. During this first part of his trip, he discovers that while some people were forcibly evicted from their land, others voluntarily chose to seek a new life half a world away in South America. Today this is a landscape of wild, untamed beauty.
After taking the ferry north Cameron celebrates the lesser known aspects of 6 Orkney islands - South Ronaldsay, Hunda, Orkney mainland, Rousay, Sanday and, at the furthest tip of this archipelago, North Ronaldsay. His guests include those whose families have lived here for generations to relative newcomers who have made the journey north to become part of a vibrant community. No visit to Orkney would be complete without exploring the rich archaeological remains found here, but Cameron also meets two exceptionally talented traditional musicians; discovers why these islands are so environmentally important, and spends time with a former lighthouse keeper turned beachcomber and a visitor who is attempting an unusual world record.
Running time: approximately 117 minutes.

The Pilgrims' Trail A stunning new route from Iona to the North Sea.
Cameron McNeish’s highly acclaimed film in which he celebrates the best of Scotland’s history and landscape with a new coast to coast walk across the Highlands from Argyll to Easter Ross. This is a journey into our rich and often turbulent past, following in the footsteps of our ancestors – the Celtic priests, Vikings, fugitives, red coat armies, or even those who earned their day to day living here, the lead mine workers, deer stalkers, drovers and hydro workers.
 
Cameron walks this 250 mile route from Iona, often called the cradle of Christianity in Scotland, through Mull taking in its highest mountain, Ben More, before heading for the remote Morven hills, the atmospheric Sunnart oakwoods and into the wild and remote landscape of Morar to Glen Affric.
His celebration of what he calls ‘this world class landscape’ continues through Glen Strathfarrar, Strathconon and includes an ascent of the iconic Ben Wyvis. The walk finishes at a Pictish site which has been described as Scotland’s best kept secret – an 8th century monastic settlement in Easter Ross that was one of the most important artistic and manufacturing centres in Europe.

The Western Way The Western Way
Cameron McNeish’s stunning new route from the Mull of Galloway to Oban
Linking together footpaths and long distance trails Cameron McNeish walks from the magnificent Mull of Galloway to Oban and visits five very different islands en route.
It’s not often the opportunity arises to visit five different islands in the course of a long distance walk, but that’s what the Western Way offers.
From the lonely outpost of the Mull of Galloway lighthouse, the most southerly point in Scotland, Cameron McNeish sets out to walk to Oban following the rugged and indented coastline of western Scotland. In between he takes time out to climb the Merrick in Galloway and visit five separate islands – Ailsa Craig, Arran, Holy Isle, Islay and Jura.
From Jura the route continues through Cowal to Loch Lomond and along the West Highland Way as far as the Blackmount Deer Forest where remote tracks lead to the legendary Loch Etive, Taynuilt and the Royal Road through Glen Lonan to the bustling West Highland town of Oban.
In the course of his journey Cameron chats with naturalists, historians, guide-book writers, novelists and a Bhuddist nun but it is also the diversity of superb coastal and mountain scenery that makes these films so memorable.

Scotland End to End Accompany writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish as he walks from Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders to Cape Wrath on the GORE-TEX® Scottish National Trail.
Wandering through some of the most magnificent landscapes in Europe, the 470 mile Scottish National Trail follows many of Scotland’s existing trails and rights of way and in doing so creates a long-distance walking route that compares with the best in the world.
The trail not only connects some of our finest landscapes into one long end to end journey but it also connects us with the history of these landscapes - a history that has recorded the plundering raids of the borderland; the growth of industrialisation in the central belt; and the march of armies, saints, drovers, as thieves and vagabonds through these wild lands that have since been emptied of people.
Today only the whispers remain, along with the call of the curlew and the song of the skylark.
