The duo will be touring Scotland's wild landscapes and bustling cities, going beyond the beaten track and getting stuck into the most exciting experiences their nation has to offer, meeting a diverse and surprising mix of locals – plus the odd famous friend.

Filming started on the Isle of Harris, with the team coming to Easter Ross at the weekend.
