TV & Media
Western Isles Cruises has done a number of private hires for TV production and this year we took part in the making of Series 5, Episode 5 of SAS Who Dares Wins 2020.
It was great fun and something a bit different from our normal ferry service, and we can tell you first hand it is as brutal on the contestants as it looks on TV.
We picked-up both teams from a beach on the Isle or Raasay, hid them from the hunter force, gave them their instructions and dropped them off for the next part of their mission.
