The Isle of Eigg is one of the most beautiful Hebridean Islands. About five miles long by three miles wide, Eigg lies 10 miles off the Scottish West coast and features beautiful moors, beaches composed of white quartz and historic ruins that include Iron Age forts, a 6th century Christian church and Viking burial mounds. Eigg is home to musicians and craft workers, writers, film-makers and photographers. It even has its own record label and artist residency, craft shop co-operative, an annual Feis,... [see more] the Howlin Fling Festival and a regular programme of concerts, ceilidhs, plays, workshops and films. At less than a mile in length, Easdale is the smallest permanently-inhabited island of the Inner Hebrides, off Scotland's west coast. Many visiting residents live in other parts of Scotland but have ancestral connections going back several generations. Every year - in September - they have a world-famous stone skimming competition - which we are there to document!
The unique new travel series ISLANDS WITHOUT CARS takes a rare and whimsical look at life without cars, buses or trains. On small, remote and sparsely populated isles scattered throughout Europe, most of the inhabitants travel and transport goods by donkey, bicycle and other non-motorized vehicles. It may seem like a bygone era, but for some, it is a modern reality. The six-part series offers a fun and engaging look at the remote islands of Hydra (Greece), Sark (Channel Islands), Inish Meain (Ireland), the Aeolians (Italy), Zlarin and Krapanj (Croatia), and Porquerroles (France) through the eyes of a youthful and vibrant host.
