Braveheart chase in Scottish Highlands. In Northwest Sutherland County, there is only one person per square kilometer. You imagine yourself in another world: rugged mountaintops, green and red of peat plants, heather brown, peat lions and valleys inhabited by stones and pebbles. “Once we leave the cobbled roads behind and head into the hinterland, we have the landscape to ourselves. Along a stream, we climb a mountain pass, past red ferns and over crushed stone, until three holes in a rocky face reveal themselves.”
