Watch as Ben dives beneath the crystal-clear waters of Skye to catch shellfish by hand, an environmentally sustainable form of fishing that yields only the most succulent scallops. Scotland. A spirit of its own: https://goo.gl/0IYStn

Ben grew up watching his dad going diving and has always been fascinated by the sea and the vast expanse of life hidden beneath the water’s surface. However, when he left Skye at 18 to go to university, he had no intentions of returning home. It wasn’t until one day when he was driving home with his dad, over the hills and past stunning lochs, that Ben realised there was no place he would rather be.

Hear from Ben why nothing compares to going out into the wild to dive, fish and explore in Scotland. He works alongside his dad to place small scallops in the shallows, which are harvested by hand once fully grown. As far as he’s aware, they are the only people in the world who use this method of fishing. For Ben, this is home and he can’t imagine doing anything else.

Listen to Andy speak about the pride, spirit and spectacle of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Scotland. A spirit of its own: https://goo.gl/lBkE6A

A veteran of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Piping has been a life-long passion for Andy who has had the honour of being the lone piper at this iconic event. Find out more about the Edinburgh Military Tattoo here: https://goo.gl/nPZN1E

Andy began his musical journey at just 10 years old, when his next-door neighbour offered to teach him the Scottish Bagpipes. After a couple of months, he had the bug and has been carrying on the traditions and culture of Scottish music ever since. Watch as Andy describes his own experiences of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo – from walking through the drawbridge of Edinburgh Castle and seeing the crowd when he was a boy to the flash of the spotlight signalling the beginning of his lament as the lone piper – and see the magical highlights of this uniquely Scottish celebration of music, dance and military pageantry.

Being in the military, in a Scottish regiment, it doesn’t matter where Andy goes, he always takes his ScotSpirit with him. Discover more of what makes Scotland unique here: https://www.visitscotland.com/about/uniquely-scottish/
