It has been revealed that the next two episodes of The Grand Tour will be set in Loch Ness, Scotland, after Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May and the rest of the team filmed the studio segments on location in December. The trio filmed the segments at Fort Augustus – joining Palm Springs in California and Lapland on the list of locations used for the show.
Promotional material from Amazon for the show said the hosts chose to stay on in Scotland for a second episode after a mysterious find after the previous episode was filmed. The first episode will become available on Amazon Prime this Friday, while the second episode showcasing the Highland scenery will become available on Friday, January 27.
A spokesman for Amazon said: “The Grand Tour tent is once again on the edge of Loch Ness, Scotland, thanks to an amazing discovery made by the hosts since the last show.”
The second episode will see the three presenters test exotic cars on a road trip around central Europe “taking in some of the most grown-up and not at all childishly rude place names the region has to offer”. It’ll follow on from this Friday’s episode which shows the trio traveling around northern France in three used Maseratis.
The boys caused quite a stir amongst the locals when their tent arrived in Fort Augustus in early December. The location was praised by Clarkson during filming who describing the view from the tent as “mesmerising” on social media.
