LP Pathfinders: top video of the month, September 2017

Untitled design (17)

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

This month we were bowled over by the beautiful footage of Scotland from Cameron and Natasha of The World Pursuit.

‘We recently took a 10-day road trip around Scotland's North Coast 500. Covering 516 miles, it was a beautifully scenic drive through the wild Scottish Highlands where we encountered highland cows, stags, sheep and stunning coastline along the way. Here are the best spots from the trip.’

Scotland’s North Coast 500 - The World Pursuit

We think this video strikes a great balance of beautiful drone footage of the Highlands’ iconic vistas with up-close shots of the characterful wildlife, together they paint a wanderlust-inducing picture of Cameron and Natasha's overall trip. We’re ready to jump in the car and follow hot on their heels.

As always, there were a lot of great submissions this month. We particularly enjoyed Chloe’s tour of Brighton, an iconic seaside destination in the UK, while Dan’s reflections on his recent trip to Peru had us dreaming of our next big trip.

Thank you to all the Pathfinders who submitted videos this month – keep your eyes peeled on our Thorn Tree forum where we’ll post the next submission call-out.
