Alan Cumming's Edge of Scotland

About the Show

Follow Hollywood and Broadway star, Alan Cumming, as he sets out to explore his native land's western isles. Travelling from Barra to Stornoway on Lewis, the acclaimed Scottish actor meets the people of the Outer Hebrides and learns about the realities of life in this frequently stunning yet often unforgiving environment. On his island-hopping journey of discovery, Alan investigates the ancient mystery of a standing stone circle that's older than Stonehenge, and cuts a dash in some traditional local tweed. Alan also hears the true tale behind the classic film, 'Whiskey Galore', takes part in a football game on the very special pitch, negotiates a lunar landscape made up of ancient rock, and ends up seeing a lifelong dream fulfilled.
