TV weatherman Sean Batty is set to embark on another scenic journey across the country in a brand new series of hit STV travel series, Sean’s Scotland.

The much-loved presenter will leave his weather map behind and venture to some of Scotland’s most stunning locations, meeting the fascinating people who live and work there and learning more about his beloved homeland.

Sean’s epic journey will take him to the East Neuk of Fife, Tiree, across Perthshire, the Borders, Islay, and will conclude on the Black Isle. During his adventures, Sean tries his hand at surfing, heads for the hills on a highland safari, takes a dip with the “menopausal mermaids” of Pittenweem, and discovers how Islay residents are creating a sustainable future for the so-called ‘Queen of the Hebrides’.

The six-part series, sponsored by Citylink, will air on STV on Sunday evenings from 4 September, but STV Player viewers will get an exclusive first look with the entire series available to stream for free on the platform from today (29 August).

The first series of Sean’s Scotland aired in 2019 and was one of the year’s most-watched travel documentaries across all channels – second only to Billy Connolly’s Great American Trail on STV.

Featuring a strong focus on sustainability across its six episodes, the new series of Sean’s Scotland reflects STV’s commitment to raising awareness of environmental issues and promoting sustainable lifestyles as part of its wider long-term sustainability strategy, STV Zero.

Blockquote open I had the time of my life filming the first series of Sean’s Scotland and I could never have imagined that series two would top it – but there’s absolutely no doubt I fell in love with all the beautiful locations we visited on this second wide-ranging tour of our gorgeous country.

Over the past few years, I've had as many people ask me about a new series of Sean’s Scotland as I have about the weather! The success of series one put me on cloud nine, and even though we've had to wait a few years for the second, I hope it'll brighten up living rooms across the country once again. Blockquote close
