Feeling intrepid? This small cluster of islands off the north-west coast of Scotland feels just like being abroad, only you speak the language and don’t need a passport. If you Google the island of “Tarensay” you’ll find it’s famous as the host of the TV series Castaway, an early, outdoorsy Big Brother style show, where a group of people (including TV presenter Ben Fogle) had to battle it out for survival together. Here you could take your camera and create your own Castaway show. Not only will this widen your CV skill set but you will amaze your mates and family with your Gold DofE expedition across golden beaches, rugged moorland and mountain tops with views across the Atlantic.
