Short documentaries for NatureScot about Peatland ACTION

By - Richard - 1st March 2024

For the last 12 months, we have been producing a series of short documentaries for NatureScot about the importance of peatland restoration to help tackle the climate and nature crises.

The short film above provides an insight into the challenges involved in producing these films in Scotland in winter. It’s not all glorious sunrises and amazing vistas!

Travelling all over Scotland, we have produced short films about peatland restoration sites at Ben Wyvis and Strathvaich in the Highlands, Duchal Moor on the West Coast and the Buccleuch Estate in the Scottish Borders.
