To celebrate the rich and fruitful relationship between rivers and people, Paul Murton sets off on a new Grand Tour, this time of Scotland's Rivers.
Scotland holds two thirds of Britain’s river systems, more than 125,000 km. Varying from small highland burns to deep, wide lowland rivers such as the Forth and Tay, when combined there is enough river in Scotland to go round the Earth three times.
Following each river from source to sea, Paul Murton travels through a great variety of iconic scenery and spectacular landscape.
Each Grant Tour celebrates the rich and fruitful relationship between rivers and people, and introduces a cast of characters who live along the banks of Scotland’s great waterways. As Paul experiences the glories of Scotland’s everchanging scene, he uncovers intriguing tales from the past in a land where history and legend, myth and reality are tightly woven together.
