BBC Radio Scotland and the Open University have collaborated to produce an Audio Walk in Kilmartin Glen. The presenter is Glaswegian Neil Oliver, arguably – but who would argue? – the most galvanic historian to hit the television screen for a long time when he emerged from the team on the first series of Coast. The extent to which his personal contribution underpinned the series was recognised when he effectively became the lead presenter in the following series.
You can download and print off instructions on the walk and you can download the Audio Walk itself to your mobile phone. Argyll’s Kilmartin Glen is a site of primary archaeological and historical inportance to Scotland – as well as beng a very beautiful and mysterious glen where it’s past never seems far from the surface. This audio walk is an imaginative and mobile information source for locals and visitors alike.
