    DescriptionBack in Scotland, the River Hunters go in search of evidence of the clashing Scottish clans embroiled in the civil war that raged across the British Isles in the 17th Century. Fights erupted during this period between the Royalists supporting the King and the Covenanters wanting more power for church and state.

    Starting on the River Lochy, situated in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the group hunt for evidence of the 1645 Battle of Inverlochy - a pivotal fight that saw the Royalist army launch a surprise attack against the ill-prepared Covenanters.

    Following one of the victorious Royalist clans’ route home, the team travel to the River Arkaig, ancestral home to the mighty Clan Cameron, where they pull up finds showcasing highland life through the centuries and potential battle relics from the civil war. The hunt is dramatically cut short, however, when a military find with explosive potential is uncovered.
