In “Sacred Islands with Ben Fogle”, the author and adventurer will explore the beating heart of community and spirituality of the islands.

He said: “I’m still fascinated by Scotland’s islands. The remoteness, the peace, the wonder – I even named my daughter Iona after one. I’m lucky to have been to a lot of places but to me these islands are the most beautiful on earth.”
