During the sixth week of my video challenge I found myself in the beautiful Perthshire town of Pitlochry. I've traveled past it on many occasions but this is the first time I've had a chance to stay overnight and explore it. It's a really stunning part of Scotland especially at this time of year when it's covered in snow so it seemed the perfect setting for my next video. Without any deliberate intension the focus of the video became water in all it's forms. From the snow and ice, to the rivers and lochs and even it's transformation into whisky.
As part of our visit we trekked up a hill to the local Edradour Distillery. It holds the record as Scotland's smallest distillery and employs only three people to make all its whisky. It sits in a beautiful little valley completely hidden from the surrounding world. We also visited Pitlochry's famous dam. Again it's on a reasonably small scale compared to others I've seen but it's nice to be able walk right across the top and see the fantastic view of the surrounding countryside. In this video you can also briefly glimpse the Old Mill Inn where we stayed. It's a superb little hotel with friendly staff, very comfortable rooms and really excellent food.
I shot this on a Canon 7D with my Sigma F1.8 24mm, Canon F1.4 50mm and F1.8m 85mm lenses.
