Boats, boots and bikes...
BBC Alba’s Calum Macaulay and Niall Iain MacDonald are exploring Scotland’s canals by boat, by boot and by bike.
Along the way, Calum and Niall Iain meet those whose livelihood depends on the canal – visiting a floating hotel and hearing from those who choose to live on or near the water.
On the Caledonian Canal, the boys take charge of their own 40ft cruiser, leaving Caley Marina in Inverness for a couple of days’ sailing down Loch Ness, before taking to their bikes along the Great Glen Way.
Calum is in Commando country as he visits Spean Bridge War Memorial, while Niall Iain finds out how electricity finally came to the Highlands as he travels to Mucomir hydro-electric power station. Calum also joins the team on board the Scottish Highlander, a Dutch barge converted into a luxury floating hotel which offers cruises from Inverness to Banavie, Fort William.
The series starts tonight (Thursday June 8) at 9pm on BBC Alba.
