If a picture says a thousand words, then this new mountain biking video tells a truly epic tale of the wild, natural beauty of Scotland’s great outdoors and encapsulates the spirit of adventure too.

In the latest offering from Cut Media, you can follow the journey of British mountain bike racer Hannah Barnes as she explores some of the remotest terrains in the North West Highlands.

Since she began competing in 2008, Hannah participates in a range of mountain biking events all across the globe. But for Hannah, home is Fort William, the Outdoor Capital of the UK, and last year she decided to get on her bike and discover some of the incredible trails right on her doorstep.

Hannah’s ride took her 250 miles from Fort William to Cape Wrath, roughly following one of the most demanding long distance walking routes in the country, the Cape Wrath Trail.

And luckily for us, she was joined by a team who documented her amazing trek north. In a 26 minute-long film, you can join Hannah on her journey through some of the most breathtaking Highland scenery and across a variety of untamed landscapes.

Just to whet your appetite, check out the below trailer or you can view the full-length video on YouTube.

You can also read about Hannah’s amazing adventure in an online article from the mountain biking website www.pinkbike.com.
