Ep: 1 "Beachcomber Cottage"
Who doesn't dream of getting away from it all? Carving out a simpler life in a remote rural idyll has long been the fantasy of many a city dweller - but is it possible to do without all the modern conveniences? Monty Halls thinks it is. A former Royal Marine and highly qualified diver, marine biologist and explorer, Monty plans to live off the land in a remote crofter's cottage on the west coast of Scotland. He's got enthusiasm, skills and the advice of the local community, but is it enough to help Monty beat the worst that Scotland's weather can throw at him?
