Summary Following a 19th-century guidebook, presenter Paul Murton explores the parts of Scotland that have charmed visitors for two centuries. In this episode, Paul discovers how 19th-century Scotland's mountains and glens were a playground for rich gentlemen eager to test themselves against the forces of nature. In the spirit of Victorian manliness, Paul makes the journey using a conveyance of the period, an original 1870s tricycle. His route takes him from Dunkeld along the banks of Britain's longest river, the Tay, before climbing the mountains to Royal Deeside. (From the UK) (Documentary Series) (Part 2 of 6) G CC
