GoPro Adventure on Scottish Highland Estate
Another Gopro adventure, this time on a Scottish Highland estate. Amazing scenery of mountains, rivers and woodland with a bucket list of must see wildlife.
Our host for the day, Colin the Game Keeper knows the Scottish estates like the back of his hand having worked for many years with the land and the wildlife and with the Range Rover this haven of Scottish heritage is accessible. Every corner we turned and the higher we climbed the views of mountains became more breathtaking, mountain after mountain repeated in the distance. Walk on the moorland to inhale the musky smells of the rutting deer, the roar of the stags and cackle of the grouse, then climb down to the river bed as the river crashes through the rocks and watch the salmon leaping.
We travelled across the mountains, through rivers and along tracks lined with 100-year old heather. The grouse flew out from the heather across in front of us, the stags on the sides of the mountains turned their antlered-heads to look and a golden eagle soared above us. If there is a bucket list of must sees for the Highlands, I think we ticked off most of them in one day. Oh and to mention the shooting part of the day, we attached the GoPro to the bonnet and videoed the 4×4 action and we got the cameras out to capture beautiful waterfalls and landscapes.
