Walking Through Landscape - Episode 3


Take a walk though any landscape in Scotland, and there's a story to be uncovered - of human lives, and the impact we've had on the land around us. Join Iain Stewart as he visits some of Scotland's most intriguing landscapes, guided by people who live and work in them, to uncover tales of how we have exploited, celebrated and enjoyed Scotland's forests, hills, lochs, glens and shores. This walk takes Iain to the East Neuk of Fife, home to Scotland's last village fishing industry. Yet the fishing is not what it once was - because many of the fish have disappeared from the Forth. Iain walks between Pittenweem and Anstruther, to hear how the decline of the fishing industry has affected them. As he follows the coast, he seeks out the wildlife which draws visitors to the area. What happens under the water affects the lives and livelihoods of the people who live in these villages, and Iain discovers that even today, this corner of Fife is shaped by its proximity to the sea.
