INCREDIBLE footage has captured a drive on the “best road in Scotland” through Glen Coe – in 360 degrees.

The stunning video shows the view from every angle driving through the legendary pass, from streams to snow-capped peaks of over 3,500ft.

The video, which can be panned and tilted as it runs, has been viewed over 100,000 times since being uploaded on to Facebook last week.

Sky View Video, who captured the footage, say they hope it will encourage even more tourists to take the Glencoe trip for real, following in the tyre tracks of James Bond.

Craig Jump, Director at the Balloch-based firm, said: “We have been developing and dabbling with 360 degree video for the past couple of years, and it’s started to go mainstream in the past few months.”

“We chose to take the video of Glencoe because it’s a major Scottish landmark.

“It’s good to give people a view of what they might want to visit. It’s gone viral on Facebook so it has really put Scotland on the map.”
