Shortly after passing through the gates of Hadrians Wall, Esca and Marcus are seen travelling along a track running through a wet bleak wilderness i.e. the Highlands of Scotland on a good day. For this purpose this scene was filmed at Rannoch Moor which has around 100 inches of rainfall a year and is mostly a vast peat bog covered with streams and numerous small lochs.
The mountain in the distance on the left is Stob a' Choire Odhair, 945m (3100ft) high. The track points to it's higher neighbour of Stob Gabhar 1090m (3576ft) high almost hidden in the clouds. On the right of the picture are the initial slopes of the highest mountain of this group Meall a’ Bhuiridh 1108m (3635ft) high.
