BBC2 Documentary ‘Scotland from the Sky’

Back at the end of August we took a BBC2 film crew and presenter Jamie Crawford out to Belnahua in the firth of Lorn to film for the programme ‘Scotland from the Sky’.   Episode 3 was shown on Wednesday night but you can still get it on iplayer, link below. A really interesting day for us and they have made a great programme! The Etive Explorer can be seen at the beginning of the programme, and again landing the crew on Belnahua.
