Imagine that you are a raindrop about to land on Scotland. Your destiny, dear raindrop, is that when you do touch-down, you will start on a journey, by bog, burn and river, before finally emptying into either the Atlantic Ocean or the North Sea. Which it is to be will depend upon which side of the spine of the country – the Watershed, or water divide – you have first landed.
Nature`s Peace is an original and spectacular visual journey along the spine of Scotland, which introduces in full colour a landscape feature that is without equal. Here is an opportunity to explore something of its magnificence; to appreciate in full the distinctive qualities that are to be enjoyed by all. Be prepared though, for it is uncompromising – nature alone made it.
