Podcast: off-road in the Scottish Highlands

In the spring of 2017, our editor and podcast host Greg Dickinson travelled to the far northern Scottish Highlands on Rough Guides duties.

While there he met Colin Murdoch, the eccentric deerstalker who runs extraordinary tours across the Reraig Forest Estate.

This episode takes us off the beaten track and into Colin's "argo", an amphibious buggy designed to traverse the muddiest, squelchiest landscapes imaginable. The aim of their adventure is to meet Colin's second family – a herd of majestic red deer.
