Project 282 – Film

Check out this superb 10 minute film of Emily Scott’s continuous round of the Munros in 2018.

Back on the 26th of May 2018, Emily set off to climb all of Scotland’s Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet), attempting to make a continuous, self-propelled and self-supported round.

The continuous, self-propelled and (largely) solo expedition took her 120 days and involved 2,200km on foot and 2,600km on the bike, with over 195,000m of ascent. Her great film of the trip – Project 282 – has received some success with film festivals, although of course Covid has meant that the majority of these were online. Most notably the film won the John Muir Trust Wild Places Film prize at the Fort William Mountain Film Festival and was also voted the People’s Choice at the Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival. As part of her challenge, Emily was fundraising for three UK based emergency charities: the Mountain Bothy Association, Association of Air Ambulances and Scottish Mountain Rescue.

It’s now available to watch free below, hosted via Vimeo.

The film was produced by perch in collaboration with British Adventure Collective.
