Great scenes in Scotland.
26 October 2015 | by keith-801See all my reviews

Watched this mainly because I'll watch anything with scenes on the West Coast of Scotland. As far as I can tell it was filmed on the island of Luing, just to the south of Oban. Well, the ferry scene at the beginning of episode 2 was defiantly filmed there. Whether they film-makers were trying to be deliberately obscure or not is hard to tell, but they carefully avoided filming any kind of signs etc. keeping the viewer guessing the whole time :-)

As for the programme itself, my wife wasn't interested in watching beyond the 1st episode....Really a bit slow with poor dialogue, the narrative floe was not very realistic at all and would not be the way any kind of normal people would interact.
