Preview – Grand Tours of Scotland’s Lochs

Paul Murton

In tonight’s episode ‘ A Rock and a Hard Place’ Paul Murton focuses on the far north of Sutherland which was struck by a meteorite 1.2 billion years ago.

The wreckage of this cataclysmic event has been almost completely worn away by time, but the rocks in the landscape still bear some traces, which Paul unpicks as he embarks on a grand tour from Lairg on Loch Shin to Lochinver and, finally, to the summit of Suilven – the sugarloaf mountain.
