The Lairig Ghru | Simon Hansen

The Lairig Ghru is the best known high-level hill pass in Scotland. It crosses through the Cairngorm Plateau, one of the wildest areas in the country, and is a true classic walk. The path disappears several times and the going is rough.

This is a collection of shots from the great cleft fashioned by glaciers in the last ice age. It may go some way to articulate the exhilaration of open space, the power that reshaped it, or, simply, the apparent grandeur of the Scottish landscape.

Simon Hansen is a New Zealand filmmaker, screenwriter and writer of other things. He comes from an art background, studying Moving Image at the Waikato Institute of Technology’s Media Arts programme. He is passionate about people and travel. His aim is to tell stories of beauty and imperfection.
