One of my favorites
I am not from Scotland, but this is still one of my favorite podcasts. Makes is seem like I have been there and experienced something new. Sometimes funny too - like the time it sounded like someone fell out of an inflatable kayak and the microphone was gurgling in the water. Good stuff.
Scot in Maine, USA
My wife and I listened to your account of the Grey Mare's Tail in our house on the coast of Maine. I could almost reach out and touch the spray of these lovely falls. Our family used to hike there in the 1950's en route to Loch Skene, and beyond. Great program.
You don't have to live in Scotland to appreciate the enthusiam of this crew for physical activity and getting everyone outside and moving. I particularly like the episodes featuring schools and outdoor education. It is even better when paired with Facebook so one can see pictures of the locations. I've also learned a great deal about Scotland's geography and geology by listening and using a good map.
