Tony takes on a tough four day trek through the Kintail region of the west Scottish highlands to discover the story of the Jacobite Uprisings of the early 1700’s.
On three occasions, Highland armies assisted by the French and the Spanish, attempted to overthrow the King and put a Stuart back on the throne.
What made the Highlands such a breeding ground for revolution and how did the unique character of this landscape shape the character of the Highlanders?
Tony’s journey of discovery starts in Sheil Bridge, at the mouth of Glen Shiel, where he heads to the site of the earliest known dwellings here, the ‘skyscrapers’ of the Iron Age.
On to the village of Glenelg with its fantastic views over the Sound of Sleat to Skye……and the hulking remains of a British barracks built by George 1st 200 years ago to pacify and terrify the locals.
Via the town of Kyle of Lochalsh, he reaches the stunning Eilean Donan Castle. Now rebuilt, it had been destroyed after the invading Spanish troops landed here – and were attacked by British warships.
Finally he heads up the awe-inspiring Glen Shiel to the site of the climactic Battle where royalist troops faced off against the rebels.

This Emirate, which has grown out of the desert, has been filmed by Pierre Brouwers from every angle. Qatar is in fact a new and rapidly developing country in the middle of a construction boom. Futuristic skyscrapers emerge from nothing, bedouins barter their camels for powerful 4 x 4s, falconers equip their birds with electronic devices, and the camel jockeys are now robots. A documentary with extraordinary images to outline the shape of a new country.
