Anyone who read my TR last year may not be surprised to hear I'll be watching.

Yes I came across it on BBC2 the other night when flicking through the channels. I enjoyed it, lovely scenery. I had missed the first ten minutes but she hadnít gone to Scotland at that point.

I watch a stunning documentary on BBC4 the other night called The Last igloo. All about one Inuit hunter, his sledge and his dogs, and it held my attention from beginning to end. The landscapes were beautifully filmed.

Thanks for that. I read the OP just in time to set the recorder.

My OH has the decency to record that and watch it when I'm not around  :)

Thoroughly enjoyed watching that, quite funny in places and stunning scenery. My question was, did Sheila Hancock actually complete the walk herself, after all she was 83 at the time, no mean feat for anyone let alone a lady of her age. But to my delight she did and found an article from the ukclimbing website which details a bit more about the film and the crew.

Thanks for the recommendation

Hello, Shown here in the North on Ch. Four last night.  My eighty three year old wife watched last night and I caught up with on the Play back thing this morning.
Very enjoyable adventure for the Lady who came alive during the filming. :)
As shown it certainly was done the hard way by approaching the hill from the south side?, not been in from that side, our own approach was from the end on the road up to the Lodge to reach the Suileag Bothy where we stayed the night prior to ascending. However in the film there was an overnight in a bothy and Suileag is the only one? that I know in
that area.  Anyway I guess lots of toing and froing in a film production?.
I think that it all came together as a very fine film to watch with the combination of aged and youth.
We were just juveniles in our seventies :) [size=78%] when we reached Caisteal Liath and Canisp during the same trip....we took along our Rolling Stone daughter to keep an eye on us and to collect enough dry wood to get the fire going in the Bothy.[/size]

Thanks for the heads up, pdstsp. I enjoyed that and thanks too, MarkT for the link. It left me wondering the same thing. It's over 40 yrs since I was in that area but never got to go up Suilven; a bit too exposed for me I think. Amazing feat for her at 83.


Beautiful place, so different from other highland areas. Staying in Achmelvich we had some wonderful walks and I still treasure some pottery from Highland pottery in Lochinver.
So many paths yet to walk, so little time left

Watched this last night, thanks to this post. I definitely wouldn't have noticed it on the planner. I really enjoyed it. I didn't go on for too long and kept me entertained throughout. Recommended!
