Scottish National Trail - completed

Date walked: 10/06/2022

Time taken: 30 days

Distance: 895km

Ascent: 16550m

On 10 June this year, I completed the Scottish National Trail - having walked 895km (556 miles) from Kirk Yetholm. The last 10 days were the most incredible experience I ever had.

Previously in another post on here, I shared the previous version of my long video. Now the 132-minute long film is complete and you can watch it here:

The film is to celebrate the beauty and glory of nature first and foremost, but there is a bit of me in it. After the introductory part, the first 15 minutes or so are only photos as I only had the smart idea to start shooting videos from Aberfeldy onwards; there is more and more video clips vs still photos as the film progresses.

Walking this trail was a genuinely life-changing experience.

I've attached my film's banner to this message. The link within it leads to the same YouTube film/video.

I hope you enjoy the film, but more importantly that you walk the trail!
