Walking the Scottish Highlands | Glencoe | The Hidden Valley – Coire Gabhail

Part 1 | Part 2

The Hidden Valley (“Coire Gabhail” in Gaelic, meaning “hollow of the spoils”) is somewhere that can only be reached by ascending a fairly steep and rocky path (or descending from the mountains surrounding it). It was used by members of Clan MacDonald to hide the cattle that they had stolen, for which they demanded ransom from the owners. Cattle raiding was a custom that stretched into prehistory, but was simply considered a nuisance by the 17th Century. Clan MacDonald often had feuds with Clan Campbell, which resulted in the Glencoe Massacre in 1692. The surviving members of Clan MacDonald took refuge in the Hidden Valley.

Leading into the rocky mountains is what I tried to portray in this scene. The balance of highlights and shadows is where the true emotion holds itself.

Walking the Scottish Highlands – Ben Vrackie

Scottish weather is changeable, especially in the mountainous areas, and so we found ourselves amidst rainy and sunny intervals. You could see the rain clouds being dragged across the land while the sun would light up green meadows for contrast.  

Some footage here.

I did a little bit of filming on my walk up Beinn Ghlass and Ben Lawers. The snow was beautiful …. and slippery, but running down a fresh blanket of snow from the top of Ben Lawers is the most fun I had in weeks. A microphone is on the way so I can record some ambient sounds and you don’t have to contend with my terrible sweep pad skills (I tried making it relaxing though).
