Celebrities land as SAS Who Dares Wins is filmed on small island

A West Highland island is ‘full up’ after welcoming a late seasonal boom in visitors – with celebrities filming the latest series of SAS Who Dares Wins.

Locals reported spotting Katie Price leaving Raasay on Sunday afternoon to catch a private boat to Portree on nearby Skye.

The TV production crew has been on the island for around three weeks. They have also been filming at locations around Skye and other outlying islands.

Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton has also been spotted in the area.

Channel 4’s show sees people taking part in a gruelling SAS training course. Not all manage to complete the challenge.

One local said: “They have done up an old building for accommodation for the contestants and the interrogation rooms.

“They have hired out three or four big boats and Ribs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) and they have got a helicopter.

“It is quite a big production. This week is celebrity week. Last week when it was the normal contestants, when they got booted out they were going over on the ferry to Skye every morning and getting a lift to Inverness.

“The celebrities are getting taken off by private boat to Portree and on to Inverness by private car.

“There is no accommodation available on Raasay.”

A spokeswoman for Raasay House four-star hotel said they were fully booked with a private party until around mid November. She did not think they had people from the production team staying with them.

Despite its modest size, Raasay is one of the most geologically diverse landmasses in the world. The island has a varied landscape from rolling hills, to native forests and secluded beaches.

Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins saw a group of 25 men and women compete in the Andes Mountains in Central Chile earlier this year.

It is understood the new series will be shown in January 2020.

Reports emerged last week that Katie Price had signed up to Celebrity SAS Who Dares Wins.

The controversial reality star was reportedly preparing herself to be put through her paces by Ant Middleton on the regime laid out for those taking part.

Previous trainees have been plunged into ice cold water, forced to carry more than their body weight through rough terrain and placed on a rationed diet in order to experience real SAS training.

The celebrity version of the show will raise money for Stand Up To Cancer.

Representatives for Channel 4 and Katie Price have been contacted for comment.
