Every month, we curate the best blog posts and Instagrams from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders.

This month’s feature is from videographer Zach Murray who takes us on a journey through Scotland’s mesmerising landscapes.

Last spring my wife and I went on an incredible road trip in Scotland. We travelled through beautiful mountains, along rocky clifftops, past fairy tale-like castles and stopped off in Edinburgh, Loch Ness and even the Isle of Skye.’

A Scotland adventure – Zach Murray

By combining stunning footage of the Scottish highlands with fun, personal excerpts of their encounters Zach truly brings this travel documentary to life. There are some great transitions throughout the film, which leads us between destinations seamlessly. We particularly enjoyed the (plentiful) sheep cameos!

Thank you to all the Pathfinders that submitted videos this month. Well done to Nomadus Films who guides us through the changing pace of a day in Istanbul. We also rather enjoyed joining The Common Wanderer in their video which documents their time in Swedish Lapland.

Keep your eyes peeled on our Thorn Tree forum where we’ll post the next submission call-out. Find out what else our Lonely Planet Pathfinders are up to (or sign up yourself!) by checking out the Pathfinders video playlist and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
