Share your epic road trip footage

Have you just been or are planning a road trip in and around Scotland?  Then we need you!

Rather than sending out a film crew, on a day with best conditions and with the fanciest production equipment, our multimedia team would love to create a road trip video using your footage from all over Scotland.

We want people out on the road to film themselves and the things they are seeing … and it doesn’t need to by on state of the art cameras – anything that shoots HD would be perfect

I’ve attached a little handy guide, detailing the types of themes we’re looking for along with a few tips on how to capture the best footage.

Once you’ve got your footage, you can email it to [email protected] (with a dropbox or we transfer link if the files are large) or if it’s on youtube, simply post the link in a comment below for us all to see! You don't need to edit the footage, our team will piece it all together to make one epic video.

Happy road tripping!

    I am going on a trip to Orkney in 9 days and will be driving and using a Gopro on the dash.  If it's not raining I'll have footage of the Rest and Be Thankful, Glencoe, and other sites on the way to Orkney, and on Orkney.

    Hey Heather,

    This is an exciting idea :smile:

    I'm getting more into video recently and have a few clips you are welcome to use if they suit the project, i'll e-mail some across to you via youtube.

    Look forward to seeing the video  :)

    I love this idea!

    I've just been editing some footage from driving down the Quiraing ridge in Skye tonight, coincidentally.

    I'll send this in, but I have a two minute video from my NC500 adventure last summer that I hope will be of interest...

    Good luck with the project!

  • VisitScotland on Twitter approached me to share my Scotland Caravan Road Trip video here in this project! 
    So here you go, this is the link to my YouTube video: 

    Let me know whether you want me to send the raw footage material as well! 

    I would love to be featured and participate in showing Scotland's beauty to the world.

    Me and 6 others of my friends have just completed the north coast 500 trip and had inside car footage, trivias and tasks. This is just a short trailer of it (heads up, a couple of swear words I should have censored out)

    My girlfriend and I recently packed the North Coast 500 into 4 days - here's the video I put together from the hours of GoPro footage we filmed!

    Great videos here! Here is one I put together of our North Coast 500 trip. So lucky to have all this just a few hours drive away  :)
  • A nine day road trip through parts of Scotland. Starting in Glasgow and driving north with our rented VW California. After spending one night in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park we continued the trip and went further north up to Fort William and went back to Glasgow. This is a collection of some impressions capture while enjoying the stunning nature of Scotland. 

    Enjoy it :)
