Long Description: 
In the final program of the series, we meet the people of the Hebrides and discover how they're learning to live side-by-side with their wild neighbors. Ferryman Donnie McDonald from Skye has discovered that business can prosper if your passengers can be treated to some on-board entertainment in the form of white-tailed eagles hunting alongside the boat. We also meet Andrew Abrahams, who's attempting to turn the Island of Colonsay into a nature reserve for bees, Alice Starmore, an artist inspired by the peatlands of Lewis, and Innes Henderson, the Coll fisherman who regularly has to steer his boat through a 100 strong group of basking sharks!
