Castaway 2000 - Taransay off the Isle of Harris

Castaway 2000 - Taransay off the Isle of Harris

Castaway 2000 was a series of BBC programs covering the adventures of 30 specially selected people who have given up on the "Rat Race" of the outside world for a year and turned their efforts to a simpler way of life. Ever fancied being dropped on an idyllic South Seas desert island with white sands & waving palm trees? Well these poor souls were left on the beautiful island of Taransay in the Outer Hebrides/ Western Isles of Scotland. Taransay is a bit colder and a far more windy than any South Seas Island In fact the Castaways had to face a harder way of life altogether!
