The Cowal Way stars on the Adventure Show

CLY.jpg

I was glued to BBC2 last night for the Adventure Show episode where Cameron McNeish walked part of the Cowal Way with Jim McLuckie, its architect and main man. Cowal's scenery in bright sunshine was star of the show, but Jim was pretty impressive, too. He is also a Rucksack Reader author that I count as a personal friend so I was really delighted at how well it all came across. For the next four weeks you can catch it on iPlayer: the Cowal Way material runs from about minute 15 to about minute 28, with Jim's section at about minutes 19-24. And Jim's guidebook to the Cowal Way is here.

There is wonderful footage of the entertaining section of rocky scrambling leading to Ormidale Lodge, with Jim solicitously leading Cameron into the various tricky bits: great fun! Below Jim is reminiscing to Cameron about his childhood cliff adventures in the Pentlands, and finally Jim and Cameron walking beside the Kyles of Bute.
