Wild Scotland, by John Duncan


This video by John Duncan uses aerial footage shot with 2 drones (a DJI Inspire 1 and for the more remote locations a backpackable DJI Phantom 3) in locations from the Highlands and Islands on the west coast to John O'Groats (where the large group of seals is seen) and North Berwick on the east.

John says: "Making this film involved a series of mini adventures. Hiking up Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill at 3am in the pitch dark, to film the spectacular serrated ridge of An Teallach, and hearing stags roaring in the valleys below is a memory that will stay with me for a very long time. Also filming Bass Rock near North Berwick, which is home is to the world's largest single rock Gannet colony with some 40,000 pairs of birds, at first light was a real treat." (3:41).
