The quality here is not great, and it's in wmv format.
I could not source a better quality copy anywhere, but if I ever do I'll re-upload it.
Meanwhile, I've added plenty of text narrative here to make up for the mediocre video.
John begins his journey at the ancient seat of coronation at Scone Palace and investigates the political and religious conflicts that were affecting Britain at the time.
At the spectacular Inverlochy Castle John meets local historian Roddy Mainland and learns about the charismatic Marquis of Montrose.
One of the first men to sign the Act of Covenant in defiance of the monarchy's meddling with the Scottish Church, he switched sides and led the royalist army to victory at the second Battle of Inverlochy in 1645, when over a thousand of his enemy were slaughtered.
The journey then goes north to the Great Glen, the physical boundary between the highlands and lowlands and the route where the world's first cowboys, the cattle drovers, took their herds south to market.
Returning to Fort William, John talks of the complex wrangling that went on with the monarchy of Britain in the second half of the 17th century.
We hear how Oliver Cromwell and his army occupied parts of the highlands and how the people rose up against him, leading to the beginnings of the Jacobite movement.
The episode ends at the spectacular location of Glencoe, most famous for the Massacre of the MacDonalds in 1689, and John meets local National Trust for Scotland guide Abi Wylde, who clears up some of the myths surrounding this event.
