Video: Exploring Scotland's Bothies by Mountain Bike
This wonderful video comes our way courtesy of adventurer and filmmaker Alastair Humphreys. While making this short film, Alastair rode his bike across some of Scotland's more wild and rugged landscapes, while spending his nights inside the "bothies" that he found along the way. A bothy is akin to a mountain lodge, and there are a number of them scattered along the Scottish trails, providing respite from the elements, and a warm place to sleep, at the end of the day. The stunning images that are captured here will inspire you to want to follow in Alastair's tire tracks. The places he visits throughout the journey are starkly beautiful and alluring. This is the kind of adventure that is accessible to just about anyone if they have the desire to do it, and as always Alastair has a knack for showing us the way. Watch and enjoy. Then start thinking about your own next adventure.
