Gordon and Alastair head to the western Isles of Scotland. They visit the Isle of Mull where Gordon grew up and Tiree where Alastair’s dad was brought up and where Alastair spent much of his childhood. They are in search of otters which live up to their reputation and prove to be very elusive, much to Alastair’s annoyance. Sea eagles and puffins are less secretive making Gordon’s job a little easier. They also discover an unconventional way of attracting seals which involves Alastair, a wet suit and a set of bagpipes… Gordon only has 3 days, can he get Alastair to appreciate the natural world in the way he does?
