Grand, Indeed

Paul Murton has every reason to look pleased. The programme he presents - Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands - reaches its finale tonight at 20.00 on BBC Two with his visits to the Monachs, Sula Sgeir and then to North Rona, which is the most isolated of our islands ever to have been inhabited. The walls, of the third oldest surviving place of Christian worship in Britain, are remarkable for they date from the 8th Century and its resident, St Ronan. What a climax to a grand tour of Scottish locations.
