Three Hungry Boys

About the Show

About the Show

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, from River Cottage, has challenged three marine biologists, Trevor Thom and Tim, to live off the land and holiday for an entire month, without spending a penny.  
Hugh has given the boys a campervan filled with fuel, some very basic rations, a ferry pass to navigate the western isles, and set them loose in one of the richest natural larders of the British Isles - the West Coast of Scotland.
If you thought foraging was about picking a few berries then think again – the boys were able to work for food but never for money and they left no stone unturned as they travelled through Oban, Mull, Tiree, Fort William and Ardnamurchin in their quest to survive. 
Expect spear fishing, caber tossing, mushroom picking, goose culling, lobster baiting, log rafting, fly fishing, whisky tasting,  urchin eating, wild swimming, salmon smoking, mussel picking, Paddle surfing, scuba diving, shark swimming, and even sword dancing in a boys own adventure holiday of a lifetime.
There’ll be fun, fireworks, foraging and food – and who knows, perhaps a whole new way to holiday in Britain!
