Boots & Beards

This Our Lives documentary tells the story of Boots and Beards, a Scots Asian-run hillwalking group helping people from ethnic minority backgrounds explore the great outdoors.  We join the group as it gathers once again after a year in lockdown and prepares to celebrate its landmark 100th walk. 

We meet the group’s founders Naveed Bakhsh and Kashif Butt whose close friendship has been a driving force behind the success of the group.  Their fortnightly hillwalks began as a way to spend more time with close friends and family – but have grown into a community event that has transformed lives.
