In this episode, Penelope visits some of the most extreme villages in the show, as she indulges her love of ferries, mountains and lochs galore in seeking out some of the remarkable communities of Argyll and Bute. In Mull, she learns about the local Viking saga, celebrated by the villagers of Tarbert; before venturing north to see how the Crinan Canal created Scotland's most beautiful short cut. She visits the marble-filled Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute and watches a game of shinty in Tighnabruaich. There is also a visit to the island of Easdale, a place without roads, cars, and just one tiny ferry, that also plays host to the World Stone Skimming Championships.
