We tackle the waves and go ashore on Harris, Orkney and Iona to get an insight in the beauty and history of these remote places. The essence of their way of life, and the feeling of being far from the ruined world, fast gets under your skin.

Forget driven pheasants and partridges, in this issue we go in search on the hardest game bird to be hunted with a gun in hand, where the scenery has to be seen to be believed.
5. Salmon fishing

We're all well aware of The Big Four - Tweed, Tay, Dee and Spey. So we have asked several sporting agents to choose their Small Four - the more intricate rivers they deem to be just as worthy of recognition. Their answers make for fascinating reading.

In this issue, we talk to three artists with a unique style. There is not a paintbrush in sight.

A wee bothy, a boat and just 4,000 acres. Deep in Glen Cannich, a special stalking experience awaits.
8. Food and drink
As 2015 is Scotland's year of food and drink, we delve into the hotchpotch of wonderful local produce. We visit the Mecca of Scotch whisky, and talk to chefs with a profundity for game, fish and seafood.
9. Trout fishing
It doesn't get much wilder than a day's walking into the hills in search of remote Highland lochs and peppy brownies.
10. Stunning photography
