One of Scotland’s leading adventure travel companies – Wilderness Scotland – has visited many of our country’s wildest and most beautiful places. They are producing a series of short films, called The Wilderness Episodes, which give an insight into the character and life of the wild places of Scotland. Wilderness Scotland said:
“It’s not only stunning landscapes that remind us of the value of wild places, it is also the insights and tales of the people who live and embrace it. The people and places of Scotland are so rich in culture, colour and inspiration, we have, for a long time, wanted to try and capture, then share their spirit.
“Our first episode focuses on the Knoydart peninsula, often called Britain’s last great wilderness due to its inaccessibility and dramatic wild landscape. This film gives an insight into life on Knoydart from local people who have spent most of their lives there and others who have chosen to make it their home, such as local farmers, crofters and restaurant owners. The values they live by are shaped by their special location. The strong connection with each other and the land make a fascinating insight into life in a remote place.
“We plan to release five episodes throughout the year every six weeks.
“Subsequent episodes include an insight into the mind and motivation of renowned landscape photographer, Colin Prior. He will be sharing his passion for Scotland’s landscapes and how his photography has been developed and inspired by it. We will also be visiting the Outer Hebrides on a mountain biking adventure, canoeing across the wilds of Assynt and investigating the vibrant Scottish traditional music scene which reaches across many of the Highlands and Islands.
We hope we can take you with us on a journey through Scotland’s wild places.”
If you want to experience the outstanding wilderness of Knoydart for yourself, now is the perfect time to visit during the Year of Natural Scotland! There’s plenty going on during this year-long celebration of Scotland’s natural beauty.
Looking forward to episode two already!
