“Way Back Home is the incredible new riding clip from Danny MacAskill, it follows him on a journey from Edinburgh back to his hometown Dunvegan, in the Isle of Skye.”
I love Danny Macaskill’s video that puts Scotland’s cultural and physical landscapes on display. This extreme sports clip is in many ways more about the places that are being shown that infused with gorgeous physical landscapes. The architecture, the historic sites, the everyday towns, and transportation infrastructure all speak to the importance of landscape in creating a place that is beloved by its people.
Not surprisingly, I’m also a fan of this other video, The Ridge. The Ridge is far more about the physical landscapes of Scotland than the cultural landscapes, but both are stunning.
“#TheRidge is the brand new film from Danny Macaskill… For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.“
