Travel Videos on Scotland?

I like to watch travel videos on my iPad which I do my morning workout. My focus right now is on Scotland, both in honor of the momentous day ( whichever way the vote goes) and to prepare for a hoped-for trip next year. This morning I watched the Globe Trekker video on it is pretty good ( much better than Rick's, which I do not care for). Any other recommendations?

Rudy Maxa's video, that visits Skye and ends in Edinburgh, has been on PBS's Create channel several times in the past couple of months. Our library has a decent Passport to Europe DVD by Samantha Brown from 2007 that focuses on Edinburgh. Don't know about getting either on your iPad, though.

The above recommendations are good, we don't know of any other. Sorry you don't enjoy Rick's.

Letter from England ; Lola , go to YouTube and look for " Great British Railway Journeys " , an ongoing series ( I think there are four or five now ) presented by Michael Portillo and produced by BBC . Many segments are set in Scotland and all of these are perfect vicarious voyages , while working out or , preferably , nursing a dram . You will have to sift through them to put them in some order , but it's well worth the effort . I love these , and bought them all on DVD from Amazon UK . Watch one and I guarantee you will be hooked . We are in Salisbury now , headed for Dorset tomorrow , and eventually to Scotland for our second visit . I hope you like the shows , all our best , Sue and Steve .

Lola - You might check your library for travel videos.
