Alastair Humphreys put together a beautiful, historical and meaningful film about the legendary bothies. There are over 100 bothies in the UK where recreationists can lay to rest for the night, which can prove to be the difference between a wet and miserable or a dry and comfortable sleep. The Mountain Bothies Association is celebrating 50 years where they have raised money to maintain these oasis shelters. Alastair travels from bothy to bothy with his bikepacking rig, all while dedicating a great portion of time filming his experience.
