Scottish delight: Take the High Road released on DVD

Take the High Road first hit the small screen in Feburary 1980 and ran for over 23 years.

Now you can relive the memories of Scotland’s favourite soap as the first six episodes are released on DVD.

Take the High Road is set in the fictional community of Glendarroch, on the stunning shores of Loch Lomond.

Nancy Banks-Smith, the redoubtable TV critic of The Guardian newspaper, once described as "the best scenery in all soap".

No doubt that was why it was so popular, not just in Scotland but all over Britain on the ITV network, a real taste of the Highlands with some splendid characters, notably the severely Presbyterian Mrs Mack.

The exteriors were filmed at the picturesque village of Luss which, to this day, remains a popular tourist attraction.

So grab a cuppa and settle down to relive the magical memories of Take the High Road. The DVD is available from June 20 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
