The Last Wilderness of Scotland: A Breathtaking Documentary About Two Friends and a Canoe’s Battle Against the Elements

This journey had one objective: to tie “a collection of lochs together.” The beauty of the Scottish Highlands and the “wildest corners of Scotland” made this expedition an experience of a lifetime for Jamie and Ian. “It was about fulfilling a deep and aching desire to live and breathe the great outdoors.”

On foot and in a canoe, Jamie and Ian set out to explore “Scotland’s Last Wilderness.” The soul-soothing short film that Jamie put together documents their battle against the elements as well as the life-altering beauty of the region and shows that even when, or perhaps especially when things don’t work out according to our imaginations, they still tend to teach us a whole lot about ourselves and the world outside.

“After spending most of the year indoors, in late September we were finally able to embark on our journey, but now it needed to be so much more. This film documents our attempt at completing a circuit linking up a collection of remote lochs with a series of portages.”
