Presented by Coronation Street star John Michie, this moving series journeys through the geography and history of Scotland, revealing how the Highlands were transformed from thriving communities to beautiful but barren landscapes. Michie charts 200 turbulent years of Scotland's past: from the Jacobite uprisings that almost finished the Highlanders to the 1800s, when those who remained were killed or forced from their land to make way for more profitable sheep farming. As local historians and academic experts show Michie around castles, battlefields, and abandoned villages, the stories are beautifully illustrated with stunning photography and outstanding aerial shots.
