Grand Tours Of Scotland’s Lochs: Beneath The Surface airs Wed 22 Dec on SBS



Beneath The Surface: In this programme Paul Murton’s loch-hopping journey starts on the west coast on a wild and windswept stretch of Loch Hourn. Travelling inland he reaches sheltered Loch Quoich, where he hears tales of Scotland’s last outlaw.

On the shores of Loch Lochy, he meets a couple who had a memorable encounter with a monster from the deep called Lizzie. A detour south leads to a ruined bridge where the first shots were fired of the ’45. Paul then walks an old railway line above the Great Glen and inhales diesel smoke from a reeking shunter at a station undergoing restoration.

A canal journey takes him to Fort Augustus, where he searches for the original fort. On Loch Ness, Paul meets a man who, when still a schoolboy, met the fastest man on water, John Cobb aka The Gentle Giant.

Airdate: Wednesday 22 December 2021 at 9.00pm on SBS.
