Have you been to Ayrshire & Arran recently? You might just be surprised at what you see. The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway is the ideal place to start before you venture inside Burn’s cottage where Scotland’s National Bard was born in 1759. Continue your Burns’ adventure at Rozelle House where you’ll find Tam O’ Shanter paintings by Alexander Goudie. Don’t miss the Burns House Museum in the charming cobbled backstreets of Mauchline and enjoy an audio tour. […]
Self-shot and edited whilst cycling around the world, this short film charts my winter journey into the Canadian Arctic as I completed my bike ride up the American continent. Compelled by Jack London’s assertion, that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, I sought an adventure of perfect solitude. Yet, as I came to realise, the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable environment were a long way from the romantic images I’d held of this land. The Frozen Road is an honest reflection on my solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration I experienced when riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‘last great wildernesses’.
Over the last year The Steaming Boots Team has been capturing footage on their adventures in the Scottish Mountains. The majority of the landscapes have been captured from the summits of some of Scotland’s most stunning areas and in all conditions. In the process the team have enjoyed some amazing times as well as enduring the limitations of filming (i.e. extra kit to carry, loitering in blizzards and small issues such as keeping batteries warm !)
