The judges felt that Hannah and Jamie's video effectively portrayed the experience of setting out to view wildlife, the challenges along the way, and ultimately the reward of experiencing a privileged glimpse into animal behaviour.

Hannah said: "We're incredibly happy to have won the award. Scotland has always had a place in my heart and no matter where I am I always look forward to being able to come home to Ardnamurchan. It's amazing to have the opportunity of sharing its beauty with others in the form of media. Red deer are a beautiful species to photograph and filming them was a privilege."

Jamie said: "Hearing that we had won the Scottish Nature Video Award was very exciting, I've always had a passion for wildlife and enjoy expressing this passion through photography and filming. I'm fascinated by deer and having the opportunity to get so close to them without disturbing them in this film was amazing."
