    Mountain Bikes and Bothy Nights

    Hi guys,I've spent 4 years cycling round the world but, until recently, I'd never done any 'bikepacking'. I just spent a week cycling round the bothies in Scotland and put together this little film:
    I'd love to hear your thoughts,
    Cheers!

    Awesome video & experience! Before you mentioned your friend at the end I thought you had programmed a drone to follow you around with those aerial shots. Saw it's shadow in one. Bothys sound like fun!

    Hi Alastair,
    Watched your little film last night. Captivating stuff.
    I've been intrigued with this bothy lark since watching Ed Oxley's film 'In search of Peaty'. It's not going to happen this year for me as I'll be doing the coast to coast ride end of September, but I may put this on my list to do for next year.
    Thanks for shearing and inspiration.

    You can actually programme the drone to follow you but I'm not yet brave enough to do it!

    Man....now I really need to hit the lottery and quit my job. If I could just do this all day, life would be awesome!

    Woww!...that was about the best 4 minutes of adventure film I've ever seen! That's right up there at the top of my list to explore in addition to New Zealand...though it appears I might need a bit more insulation in Scotland. Wish we had the Bothy possibility here in the US.
    Thanks for the great cinematography too!
