Bonnie Scotland Calls You 1938

30 mins United Kingdom Director. Howard Gaye

"The blood is strong, the heart is Highland": there's no rest for the wicked in this spirited tour of Scotland's Highlands and islands. Accompanying two intrepid hikers as they discover the country's most celebrated natural wonders, from Lismore to Loch Fyne, we also encounter a few quirky local characters and customs along the way. The film may not be as polished as some other travelogues, but this only adds to its singular charm.

The strenuous journey is punctuated with renditions of well-known Scottish folk songs including Hail Caledonia and The Road to the Isles - feel free to sing along!
