Snow begins to fall. The clouds have descended in a matter of seconds and spread out over the valley like a strip of cotton wool. Below, visibility is unobscured. The mountain panorama looks like a photomontage. At the top a soft-edged black-and-white picture, at the bottom brown and green in all their different shades. The dramatic beauty of the treeless mountains, the light conditions, the rapid alternation between mist and absolute clarity, have made Scotland’s Western Highlands into one of the most popular filming locations for Hollywood blockbusters. Whenever they want to make a scene truly monumental, directors head to Glencoe or Glen Etive. It’s the perfect environment to see how the T-Roc fares when Scotland unleashes its speciality: spectacular weather against a spectacular backdrop. Because bad weather doesn’t just affect the views, but also (and above all) the road conditions.
Born for the mountains
The Scottish Highlands are unique: wild and weather-torn mountain landscape like nowhere else in the world. To master the challenge of this landscape, you need a good dose of self-confidence – plus a mountain guide like Andy Nelson and a car like the T-Roc.
