This past May, Anthill Films–along with Thomas Vanderham and Matt Hunter, photographer Sterling Lorence and local guides Euan Wilson and Mark Clark–set out on a week-long coast to coast crossing of the rugged Scottish Highlands on their mountain bikes.
Beginning in the small town of Bonar Bridge on the north bank of the Kyle of Sutherland, the adventure took the riders along 250 kilometres of singletrack. Over eight hours were spent in the saddle each day, all while battling harsh winds, heavy rain, and cold weather. Thankfully, Mother Nature managed to ease up a little towards the end of the journey. As the crew neared their final destination of Applecross, the sun graced the riders with its presence, warming the air and lifting spirits.
