Editorial Reviews

A celebration of the stunning landscape of Scotland

Shot in high definition, this series is a celebration of Scotland's landscape. Geographer, author and broadcaster Vanessa Collingridge hosts a fresh look at this land of dramatic contrasts, flying over Scotland's highest mountains, wildest coasts and most memorable cities. She speaks with locals and experts about what these areas have inspired, what they have witnessed and how they have changed.

Bonus Program: Scotland's Winter Wonderland - Witness this dazzling winter wonderland filmed from the air in December 2009, when Scotland woke to the silence of snow and the longest cold spell in 30 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars scotland in gorgeous HD October 26, 2010
Format:DVD
One reviewer mentioned the repetition. This is probably true, but I barely noticed, as the footage is just amazing. The photography is probably the best I have come across, and I have many many dvds of Scotland. It is a gorgeous dvd. I found it fascinating. The price is fantastic for such a long dvd. I checked it out from our library, but am going to buy my own copy now. They covered most of my favorite places. This is a perfect trip through Scotland for those like myself, who want to 'revisit' the places they have visited in the past; or for those who can't go but want to 'armchair travel'.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond and Scotland November 23, 2010
Format:DVD
This DVD set is a wonder for lovers of Scotland; however it could have been so much more if they would have used something more than aerial shots. Even if they could not get out in the country in the winter, they could have shown the effects and beauty of snow in the cities, much less not showing the sights you can see year round from roads and walking around the glens and lochs, cities and towns. You miss a massive amount of visual splendor and effects by only employing aerial shots.
There is some mention of history, but again, much of interest could have been added, which also would have made a more fascinating trip to this magnificent country.

3.0 out of 5 stars Geology Lesson June 21, 2013
By Mr T
Format:DVD
Very nice photography, but the narration and the content of two of the episodes is disappointing. Much of the intro is repeated as this was apparently intended to be three episodes - you have to listen to and watch the lengthy intro three times, basically. Scotland is indeed a unique geological wonder, and the craggy peaks and highlands are well described - to the detriment of the human and social aspect of traveling through Scotland. It would have been nice if the host had taken time to visit and talk to regular folks in the many small communities along the way, but instead we are given more of a lecture about the development of Scotland physical features. Ironic, given the nature of the people of the highlands, that we don't get to meet them or see how they live, but we get to hear some quite zealous geologists. If you want to see the people, the villages and towns, the pubs and hear the music, this is not the video for you. A small glimpse of Inveraray, but not much else outside Edinburgh and Glashgow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit too repetative September 24, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
My family and I are Scottish and we wanted to get a DVD that explored the whole of Scotland. Because this one is perhaps the only series that explores Scotland from the air entirely, we bought it with great expectations. Overall it's good, but could be a lot better. The host of the show is a geographer and that's important to note as her primary theme and focus are on the rocks and mountains of Scotland. We anticipated that the series would include more in-depth history about the towns, castles, and major cities that the camera flies over, but this is not the case. She does briefly touch on the history of these things through short interviews with town historians, but spends far too much time on the barren, solid rock, mountains and why she fell in love with them. While the music is done in a modern instrumental style, the series doesn't include any Scottish music at all...historical or otherwise. This tends to rob the scenes of the magnetic quality that normally draws the viewer into the culture of the country as well as it's scenery. Even the simple playing of the pipes that's done so well in Braveheart is never heard once in the entire series. All in all there was so much of Scotland that was left out of this video, that it leaves one rather deflated. I would recommend checking it out from the library, or renting it (if available) instead of buying it. It's one of those watch it once videos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aerial travelogue April 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a Scot, I was interested to see how my country, that I know so well, could be shown in a new way. I was not disappointed. The photography is outstanding and the commentary interesting without being patronising. Vanessa is a very good guide and it is obvious that she enjoyed her mission. The reason I knocked off one star is because I found that having to watch end titles and opening sequences for each episode was mildly annoying. Surely it could have been edited into one documentary length. Also the bonus programme "Scotland's Winter Wonderland" was a bit repetitive, with too much time spent on aerials over the mountains. However, I would recommend it to anyone as a very different perspective to a beautiful country.
