On the second leg of his journey around the islands of Britain, Martin dropped anchor off the Inner Hebrides to explore the wreck of an old steamboat. An experienced diver, Martin donned the equipment, and plunged into the icy waters. But he encountered breathing problems, and had to be brought back to the surface. On Piel, a tiny island which gets cut off from the mainland off the coast of Cumbria in Morecambe Bay at high tide, Martin meets the self styled King and Queen, and is honorary guest at their coronation. Martin crossed the Irish Sea to visit Rathlin, the only inhabited island off the coast of Northern Ireland, and one where the population is so low that the community is threatened with disappearing altogether. It has dropped from 1200 to about 80. But a new fast passenger ferry is a symbol of hope that may encourage new families to the island, enabling them to commute to the mainland to work but retain their island retreats. Martin also travels to the Isle of Man where he meets their prime minister, Tony Brown.
