BBC's Out of Doors radio program in February 2019


Euan brings us all the news from this yearís National Farmers Union of Scotland Annual conference.

He chats to Andrew McCornick, NFUS president, about the unionís concerns around Brexit and the impact a no deal scenario could have on food and farming.

The latest on beavers in Tayside as well as a look at mental health in farming.

Plus the Stand Up Farmer Jim Smith proves to us that there is a light side to the business.

Mark visits the Aberdeen Harbour Expansion visitor centre to find out how the new harbour is progressing.

Inserting Ďboltsí into rock faces on mountains is a practice that divides the mountaineering world as Euan finds out.

Mark learns all about the ancient art of horse logging.

Concrete doesnít seem like an obvious material to build a ship out of but at the end of the First World War thatís exactly what was happening in Aberdeen as Mark finds out from the Bard of Banff (Stan Bruce).

And Out of Doors was sad to learn of the death of Colin Coventry, the man who looked after Smoo Cave near Durness. We listen back to our visit there from 2017 on our North Coast 500 trip.
