Video by John Duncan

Aerial videographer John Duncan used a quadcopter and a GoPro camera to capture this stunning tour of the Scottish countryside, which he filmed over a period of eight months. The project often meant "getting up at offensively early times," he explains on Vimeo. Duncan's drone buzzed over some impressive scenes, including many from the Isle of Skye. "I wanted to make a film which really shows what a beautiful country Scotland is," he writes. "Living in Edinburgh we're fortunate to have some truly magnificent sights on our doorstep."
