Exploring the remote Scottish islands, Clunes begins his journey on Muckle Flugga, the most northerly outpost of the British Isles. Next stop is Forvik in the Shetlands, occupied by just one man — Stuart Hill — who has declared independence from the rest of Britain and invited the Queen to come and visit him in his tent. The final stop in the Shetlands is Unst, the most northerly inhabited island in the country. There we meet Derek, who is the island's chief Viking, and is responsible for maintaining Unst's Norse traditions. Clunes then heads for the Outer Hebrides, and the island of Lewis and Harris, followed by the remote island of Eigg, with its 80 inhabitants. This adventure ends in Barra, the westernmost inhabited island in Britain. Barra has picture postcard scenery and is often described as the most beautiful island in the country.
