The most dangerous stunt shows MacAskill atop a rocky mountain 914.4 metres above sea level.

MacAskill told the website PinkBike that riding the Cullin Ridge has been a lifelong dream.

“The project took a lot of planning and was probably one of the most physically demanding films I have ever worked on! It was definitely a labor of love though, as I wanted to show off the island for how it is and make everyone who lives there proud to be from this amazing part of the world,” he added.

A documentary about MacAskill's adventure will air on BBC One this Friday.
