The Adventure Show: Roads Less Travelled — Not To be Missed (even south of the border)

Some of you might not have clocked the latest two episodes of ‘Roads Less Travelled, Cameron McNeish’s latest look at the quieter byways of Scotland. thanks to the iPlayer the programme is available to all of us south of the border. You find the programme in the Scottish section of the iplayer on our Smart TV or directly here

In these two programmes Cameron takes a long, circular, walks around the Cairngorms, taking in Speyside, Rannock Moor and Loch Ossian, Glen Bruar, the little appreciated Angus Glens and Glen Muick.

Some people get a but sniffy about Cameron’s stuff but I like it. OK it can be a bit cheesy and he sticks pretty much to the formula, but then the formula works! In this mini series Cameron explores the terrain on foot, by canoe and by bike. And as always he moves around in his beloved camper van and always seems to get the opportunity sing and play with his bouzouki.

The great thing about this series is that cameron shows how those who are getting a bit older can prolong their interest in the Scottish Hills, or even explore these hills for the first time.

The second episode features an interview with my friend Helen Webster who along with husband Paul founded the now legendary Walk Highlands website. It’s nice hearing Helen talking about past adventures and her passion for the scottish Highlands.

For those youngsters out there — those of you who’s knees still work — there is still lots to gaze at. Those hills loo wonderful. Hopefully it won’t be too long until I’m out there again!
