Lochs and Mountains

One beautiful October day, I thought it would be a great idea to carry a heavy tripod on (a small part of) one of the most well-known long-distance hikes in Scotland, the West Highland Way.

Conveniently situated between two train stations, I chose the episode between Crianlarich and Tyndrum. The film, set to music licensed courtesy of mobygratis, simply documents the amazing autumnal colours and light that can be seen along this hike at this time of year. I actually visited Balloch, on the south end of Loch Lomond, very early that same morning as well, which is also shown at the beginning of the video.
