Music and nature have been a great combination.

More often than not, it is more relaxing when you listen to music while being one with nature.

And when artists mix these two, expect the mood to be uplifted, and to feel content with life and its purpose.

The best of both worlds

The Piano Guys, together with the Wasatch & District Pipe Band, had made this beautiful and inspiring performance of Fight Song by Rachel Platten & Dave Bassett.

It was played outdoors and also shot in one of the most iconic castles on Earth.

Eilean Donan Castle in Dornie, Scotland.

It is an ideal place since Dornie is also filled with lush green forests, a great view of the mountains, and fresh streams.

The music video opens with a view of the rivers and valleys in the Northern Highlands, where many battles happened in the past.

It also honors Scottish fighting heritage.

This could be the inspiration for The Piano Guys to play such a beautiful song in such majestic scenery.

It invokes a similar fighting spirit while performing the song and revealing the story and bravery.

The soft intro comes to play within the grounds of the Eilean Donan Castle.

It starts with a duet.

As the piano and cello play, you can hear the drums slowly approaching from a distance, along with men and women carrying bagpipes.

The video then showed the band marching on the bridge toward the castle.

When the traveling band arrive, the cello shifted into Amazing Grace.

Resonating its energy into every one.

It then shifted back into very strong and powerful music combined with the bagpipers as a secret element that blended well with the rest of the instruments.

It clearly resembles the Scottish fight theme.

When everyone joined in for the grand finale, the melody reached far into the lands and into the soul.
