‘Grand Tours of Scotland’ explore Arran

paul-murton-b34gra35noBBC Scotland’s Grand Tours of Scotland returns for a third series this week to take viewers on six journeys reliving the golden days of Scottish tourism.

The first episode sees presenter Paul Murton travel around one of Scotland’s best-loved holiday destinations, Arran.

Paul begins his tour at the famous King’s Cave, travels onto Lochranza, the northern gateway of the island, and calls in at Brodick Castle and then Kildonan, before ending his trip at Cleat’s Shore.

Paul said: ‘It is a place that is a distillation of all that is best in Scotland.

‘Arran has a very diverse holiday story so we begin with the early visitors who came to the island for the geology and move on to the wealthy ‘Arran Set’ of the 1920s and 30s.

‘We also had a very interesting interview with Lady Jean Fforde who is a direct link to the golden days of Arran tourism.’

Grand Tours of Scotland is on BBC One Scotland at 8.30pm on Friday 7 September.
