Scotland’s extreme northwest has been referred to as the wildest landscape left in Europe. Join Ron Strange on an eclectic tour through the Highlands of Scotland and the far-flung Orkney Islands.
Ron roams remote roads, little traveled by most American tourists, seeking out Neolithic habitation sites and discovering an eccentrically designed chapel rumored to contain the Holy Grail. Following legends from medieval France telling of treasure-laden ships arriving on isolated western shores, he finds himself meandering aside the Spey River in a region producing an elixir known in Gaelic as uisge beatha, or Whisky. A seasoned traveler, he has documented the remnants of ancient religious activity from solstice sites and standing stones to Paleolithic caves.
Ron Strange roams this wild remote landscape in search of standing stones, Grail legends and "the water of life".
