Where was SAS: Who Dares Wins on Channel 4 filmed?

Chief Instructor Ant Middleton and his team of Directing Staff, Foxy and Billy, will be joined by a new DS, Melvyn Downes

Twenty-one members of the public are set to take on the toughest challenge they have probably ever faced - and do it on TV.

Of course we are talking about SAS: Who Dares Wins which has returned for a sixth series on Channel 4.

Chief Instructor Ant Middleton and his team of Directing Staff, Foxy and Billy, will be joined by a new DS, Melvyn Downes.

And the new recruits are set to be put through what the DS believe to be their toughest, most unforgiving selection course in the history of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

There is also the introduction of some extreme tasks, never before experienced on any previous selection course seen on the Channel 4 show.

The brand new series saw the recruits taken from the comfort of their homes to the wilds of Scotland.

For the DS, The Highlands is a place where their Special Forces skills were honed. But for the nervous recruits, the remote Scottish island of Raasay will be a terrain that pushes them to their limits.

Raasay or the Isle of Raasay is an island between the Isle of Skye and the mainland of Scotland.

It's been the go-to choice for the makers of the show having made the previous civilian and celebrity series there.

New DS Melvyn said of filming in Scotland: "There's something special about Scotland and it brought back memories of my SAS training.

"Forget sunny days, you can always count on Scotland to give you all seasons in one day. And you can’t beat the excellent terrain, as it’s great for missions, which is why it worked so well for the series."
