A Skye film-maker will premiere his North Coast 500 documentary in July.

Sean Grieve was inspired to create 'Discover Scotland: North Coast 500' after he noticed most of the media coverage on the famous route was from first-time experience.  

Sean stated: "I wanted to show an honest representation of the Highlands with an authentic soundtrack that all point towards a contemporary, thriving Scotland that cherishes its culture and heritage."

Discover Scotland: North Coast 500 takes audiences on a breathtaking adventure around a 516 mile round-trip of Scotland's north Highlands to a soundtrack by Mànran (2012 London Olympics), and Kathleen MacInnes (Robin Hood).

Presented by Malcolm Jamieson (The Scarlet Pimpernel, Howard's Way) and filmed in 4K resolution with numerous partnerships with local businesses, the documentary explores the culture, history, and opportunity for adventure around the 516 miles of Scotland's north coast.

The Skye filmmaker's perspective on the North Coast 500 culminates in a 90-minute documentary, featuring a blend of visits to listed historical locations, and adventures with locals off the beaten track. Sean hopes that his project will transport audiences to the remote regions and leave them with a deeper appreciation for the route that goes beyond its striking beauty.

The film will premiere at XpoNorth on Thursday 4 July in a unique pop-up cinema in the Old High Stephen's Church in Inverness city centre on the 3 and 4 of July. 

On Thursday at 7pm, the film will be followed by a special Q&A with the young film-maker.
