Grand Tours of Scotland Season 1 Episode 1 - The Romantic Ideal

29m 12s

In this first episode, historian Paul Murton goes in search of "The Romantic ideal" and discovers how the famous writer Sir Walter Scott played a key role in re-inventing Scotland, convincing his readers that its stark landscapes were "sublime" rather than foreboding, the natives noble not savage, and the weather romantic not dreary. Travelling from the Trossachs, out to Iona and then the fabled Isle of Staffa Paul visits the iconic destinations that enchanted and inspired writers, artists and early tourists with the magic of Scotland’s unique history and landscape.
