A 16-year-old Scottish filmmaker has followed in the footsteps of John Muir, creating a short film on the wild places found along the John Muir Way.
Zeki Basan, from Speyside, walked and cycled all 134 miles of the John Muir Way - which stretches from Helensburgh in the west to Muir’s birthplace in Dunbar on the east coast - documenting his experience in a short film to inspire others to make the journey and embrace the natural environment around them.
