This week’s sneak peek kicks off in beautiful Kintail in the north-west Highlands.

Willie Shand takes us past the stunning Loch Duich. Don’t forget your camera!

Willie stops at Totaig to take advantage of the uninterrupted view across the loch to Dornie and Eilean Donan Castle.

He also looks in on the brock of Caisteal Grugaig, which is well over 2,000 years old.

Marion McGivern chats to Kristin Barrett about her fruitful community initiative.

The Perthshire resident had realised apples from a local tree were going to waste. Thanks to her efforts, the community are sharing the fruit, which they leave in handmade cloth bags around the town.

The apples have also been pressed to make juice, and the leftover pulp is used as compost.
