TV: Secret Britain - Clootie Well and Harry Potter

The episode of Secret Britain last night on BBC One on the Hidden Highlands of Scotland included a few magical places worth visiting.

On the Black Isle Ellie Harrison visited a traditional Clootie Well, which has been a shrine to healing since Celtic times and is still used today. Then, with fellow presenter Adam Henson, she went for a magical ride on the Hogwarts Express, which in real life is a steam train route through some magnificent Scottish scenery.

If that wasn't enough mystery, earlier in the episode Adam and Ellie talked to people who live near Britain's deepest water, Loch Morar, and claim to have seen a monster known as Morag.

If you missed any of the Secret Britain episodes, they are still available to watch on Iplayer:
