ITV has been filming at a Hebridean distillery for a new television series -  The  Islands of Britain -  presented by the comedian and actor Martin Clunes.

Martin Clunes made his name in the raucous situation comedy Men Behaving Badly, about the salubrious activities of two lads sharing a flat.

Recently he starred in  the lead role in the comedy drama series "Doc Martin" winning the  Most Popular Actor in the National Television Awards.  

Clunes travelled around the UK including the islands of Barra, Lewis, Uist, Eigg, Man and Scilly finding what makes remote and far flung islands tick.

In 3 days filming at Islay’s Bruichladdich distillery he took an active role in the whole whisky making process - even distilling a cask of his very own. A cask of Bruichladdich (new fillings) costs £1100 - £1400 depending on size. Cask Offer available at

Jim McEwan said: “Martin and the crew were really surprised by the level of entrepreneurial activity on Islay  compared to other  islands they visited.” Islay businesses featured: Stormcats boat builders. Islay Birding & Bushcraft. Dunlossit Rare Breed Pigs & Abattoir. Spirited Soaps.

Clunes also took part in a bacchanalian feast with local barley farmers in a remote hillside bothy, a highly convivial scene of men behaving badly.

Islands of Britain is to be broadcast nationally later this year.
