Series 2 of the popular Factual Entertainment Series continues as actor and presenter Tony Kearney (formerly River City) once again swaps the comfort of a television studio for some varied and challenging professions.

In this episode Tony fulfils an ambition of a lifetime as he travels to the Island of St. Kilda and tries out one of the remotest jobs on the British Isles – working as a St. Kildan Ranger.

After two days on stranded on Harris by a gale force 9 wind, Tony finally travels to the Island. “We emerged from the boat like pale drowned rats, smelling of sick, but it was worth it!” Tony explained.

As well as getting to grips with remote Island life Tony’s duties also included welcoming sea hardy tourists, getting to know the local, unique mouse population and doing his fair share of chores. On getting to live out his lifelong ambition Tony commented: “I was overwhelmed - it’s magical, sad, peaceful and powerful all at the same time.”

Produced by Solus Productions for BBC ALBA, TURAS TONY Episode 2: Ranger on St Kilda will be shown on Monday 5th November at 10pm on BBC ALBA.

Anns an dàrna prògram de “Turas Tony”, tha Tony Kearney a’ fàgail cofhurtachd stiùidio telebhisein gus tòiseachadh air ceithir obraichean ùra. An turas seo tha Tony air fhògradh a dh’Eilean Hiort - aon de na h-eileanan as iomallaiche san Rìoghachd Aonaichte - far am bi e ag obair còmhla ri muinntir an Urrais Nàiseanta.

Às dèidh dà là a’ feitheamh sna Hearadh far an robh a’ ghaoth aig ìre 9, fhuair Tony mu dheireadh gu Hiort.

A bharrachd air a bhith a’ fàs cleachdte ri beatha air eilean iomallach, bha aig Tony ri fàilte a chur air luchd-turais agus bha aige ri eòlas a chur air luchain, am measg obair eile.

Thuirt Tony: “Tha mi air a bhith airson a thighinn gu Eilean Hiort fad mo bheatha agus abair àite mìorbhailteach – àite brònach, làidir, cumhachdach, sìtheil uile aig an aon àm.”

Chaidh Turas Tony a riochdachadh le Solus Productions airson BBC ALBA. Chithear Turas Tony: Eilean Hiort air Diluain 5mh Samhain aig 10f air BBC ALBA.
