“Julie Features in ‘Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands’ TV Programme ”
In the final episode of the series; “Off the Map: North Rona and the Monach Islands”; presenter Paul Murton, embarks on his most difficult island Grand Tour to date. Every destination has been long abandoned by people, there are no ferries, no piers or proper landings at these islands making it quite a challenge to get there. Paul's journey sees him travel to the once-inhabited island of Heisgeir (The Monach Islands), sail around the gannet city of Sula Sgeir and endure rough seas to finally make landfall on the extraordinarily remote island of North Rona.
Julie, who has family roots on Heisgeir that go back generations, joins Paul in this Episode as she searches for her great great grandmother’s house.
The programme will be broadcast tonight (Monday 10 October) at 7.30pm on BBC1 Scotland. For full programme details/information, video clips and to watch the programme in full again (after the broadcast) via the BBC TV iPlayer, visit this link:
