Hamish retreats to a favourite spot

CHILLED
By Hamish Mitchell
Hamish takes a break from his job as an air-traffic controller and gets away to his special place in the Highlands, a village by the sea. Here he doesn't have to run to anyone else's timetable. His only concern is where the next cup of tea and biscuits are coming from. He sometimes shoots rabbits while he is chilling, in some ancestral notion of being a hunter-gatherer. He feels happier and more relaxed for having been away.

Your thoughts about this video

    

Iain Jenkins
I love heading to the Highlands too. It's important for me to have a place where I can completely isolate myself from other people and get out into the elements. The Highlands are one of the few places in the UK where you can got walking for a whole day and not bump into anyone else. Bliss...

Linda Glaude
I have a special place totally out of character with my profession as a fashion designer. I go to my friends place in the country where the nearest city is 50 miles away. It relaxes me and takes away the stress of meeting all those deadlines, so I whole heartedly agree with you - everyone should have a place where they can let all the stresses of life go and just be happy with themselves. Bravo!
