Title: Trusadh - Slighe Dhan Fhàsaich/Into The Wild
With the current worldwide population shift towards an urbanised existence, the benefits of getting back in touch with the natural landscape, and the lure of these wild remote places has never been greater. For many, living there has become a regular way of life, far from the comforts of modern living.

Amongst those we meet are a young family who spend each summer on the isolated island of Mingulay; an aspiring wildlife photographer and travel writer in remote Knoydart; a city based guidebook writer whose aim is to get people out to the wild places; two Skye sisters who have set up a wilderness boot camp; and some of the Stornoway Kayak Club as they explore the rugged Lewis coastline, and camp out on one of its many offshore islands.

In following these characters who have embraced these wild lands we'll look at whether there's a true wilderness left in an age where humans have altered so much of our landscape.
