This gorgeous series, from the makers of Hebrides: Islands on the Edge, explores the 20,000 square miles of rugged coastlines, lochs and mountains known as the Scottish Highlands. Narrated by Perthshire-born Ewan McGregor, it kicks off at the start of spring as the wildlife prepares for the breeding season. As well as brown hares, roe deer and stoats, we see the little-spotted red squirrel, which thrives here, and the magnificent fan-tailed capercaillie. But it’s the story of a pair of osprey – who have flown 3,000 miles from their winter home in Africa – that really steals the show, which is a must for any wildlife enthusiast. First shown on BBC1 Scotland.
