How can I watch The Grand Tour Lochdown?

This one-off episode will be available to watch on Amazon Prime Video, from midnight on July 30.

Viewers will have to be a subscriber to Amazon Prime to catch the show, which has been on the streaming platform since it launched in 2016.

There have been three series of The Grand Tour so far, filming in far-flung locations including Vietnam, Cambodia, Madagascar, and the USA.

Where in Scotland is The Grand Tour Lochdown filmed?

The three former Top Gear presenters get behind the wheel of a Cadillac Coupe de Ville, a Lincoln Continental and a Buick Riviera to journey through some of Scotland’s most striking locations.

They start at the border at Berwick-Upon-Tweed and cruise across the breadth of the nation, all the way up the Western Isles.

On the way Clarkson and co. stop off in Edinburgh – where Clarkson said he was told to “f*** off” by a local – and race their bangers around the Knockhill circuit in Fife.

The journey continues north into the Highlands, and eventually they make it to the Outer Hebrides, where they’re tasked with building a floating bridge.

Clarkson, Hammond, and May visited the Isle of Uist, where they had to ask permission to film on a Sunday.

The special is said to have been filmed over 10 days in 2020 and cost show producers £50,000 in coronavirus tests.

The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown will launch Friday, July 30, on Amazon Prime Video.
