Grand Tours of Scotland's Lochs

In GRAND TOURS OF SCOTLAND'S LOCHS, historian Paul Murton explores a choice selection of lochs of the 31,000 that adorn Scotland. Traveling from the wilds of the west coast to the Grampian Mountains, Murton discovers the secrets of these iconic features of the Scottish landscape -- some deep enough in places to drown Britain's tallest building. As he crosses the country, he meets an engaging cast of characters who live along the shores of these great waterways, uncovering intriguing tales from the past and experiencing the glories and variety of the ever-changing scene.

"Taming The Wild/ Through The Rough Bounds"
Paul begins with a chilly swim across Loch Ba high on Rannoch Moor, struggles against the elements while trainspotting and meets some veteran Tunnel Tigers - men who tunnelled deep inside the Grampians, diverting water to hydroelectric plants.

He exposes the area's secret connection with the celebrated SOE (Special Operations Executive), which Churchill hoped would set Europe ablaze. D
