    Great video Ted! I'm just getting in to drone photography. Your work is very pleasant, relaxed, interesting, and professional. You totally got conned by Alastair though 🙂

    "Alistair" is a thieving greedy Scotsman and is tricking people into thinking they have to pay him £10 for flying a drone, I wouldn't give him the steam of ma shite 😉

    I flew there drone without letting anyone ripped me. If I wanna ripped people of, I would do exactly the same thing. Just put the sign on the famous place as it was mine and wait for someone to catch. I think it's better to use the brain first and then look for the rules especially on the places where you do not interrupt anyone

    Alistair's a conning bastard!
    Alistair ought to fuck off.
    Alistair does not own the airspace around that part, so the next time that smelly sheep shagging bastard tries to charge you, take the sign from him, roll it up and stick it up his arse.

    Alistair happens to be the Justice of the peace for the local area (if you don't know what that means look it up) he is also the estate Manager for the Glenfinnan estate, under UK wide drone laws you need to landowners permission to fly drones. (Yes I'm aware that once you hit 100ft nobody owns the airspace) but until you reach that 100ft you are flying on private property. There's also the fact that there is a grade 1 listed building on the estate. And yes soliciting money is illegal but asking for a donation isn't. Oh did I also mention the area is a sea level training ground for the RAF meaning it's a frequently used airspace? Please READ up on the laws before y'all go making assumptions.

    Oh dear, sir. You were had there I’m afraid. The same law that allows people to wander anywhere is Scotland (called the right to roam), by consequence instead of design allows people to fly their drones. This is with the exception of any place with an airspace restriction, forestry commission land (though I’m not sure how there is a separate rule) or anywhere that is within a 50m bubble of a vehicle, vessel, structure or pedestrian. Please fly responsibly! We want to keep these relaxed rules for everyone to enjoy. Follow the drone code!
    Nice video! Glad you enjoyed your stay here!

    He cannot enforce this legally, he doesn't own the air. So long as you're not flying from the site itself (if its private property) and you don't fly closer than 50m to anything/anyone (or 150m if it is a congested area) then you can legally.

    AWESOME VIDEO! We just discovered your channel! I know the feeling about seeing the “no-drone” signs. It drives me crazy too! I want to fly the drone almost everywhere. Love the Scotland footage also! I has been curious about Scotland lately and I appreciate the landscape shots from your drone. I’ll tune into your channel! 😃

    Have an awesome day!!!

    You are free to film or photograph anything that is in the public domain, this is common law. If however, the place where you are filming or photographing is private property where access is by permission, then unless specifically allowed, filming or photographing is not allowed unless permitted. Filming and photographing outside the private property is allowed under common law.

    Just for your information.
    Unless this "Alistair" is it?
    Can provide business licenses pertaining to charging people to use drones in the property. Then this is called extortion. Which is illegal.
