Occasionally, a place leaves you so breathless that you long to return, and driving around the Highlands in Scotland left me feeling exactly that way. Before our trip, I had a strong suspicion that would be the case, so I planned accordingly and brought along an HD Polaroid Cube camera to record parts of our drive.

The sprawling hills, the great Munros, the glistening lochs… my imagination ran wild. Sure, I know I’m romanticizing the image – I’ve been on more than enough horse rides to know how sore you can be and how long it can sometimes take – but to experience the uninterrupted majesty of the land would have been amazing.
