Watch: Danny Macaskill – The Ridge

At over 11 kilometres long and beyond 3,000 feet above sea level at times, the Cuillin Ridgeline on the Isle of Skye has a reputation for being the UK’s most challenging mountain range. And when you watch The Ridge, it’s easy to see why!

The Ridge is a fabulous short film that follows Danny Macaskill as he returns to his native Skye to take on a notorious ride across Cuillin’s rocks, rivers, and peaks. It’s dangerous and death-defying. But alongside these perils, you also get some of the most awe-inspiring and breathtaking views on offer in the UK.

Watch and let Danny take your breath away. Marvel at the superb cinematography, gorgeous soundtrack, and stunning backdrop of the Isle of Skye. It’s a short film you’ll want to watch again and again.

Check out the incredible video below and enjoy one man’s daring journey across The Ridge.
