Been hoping to do this great mountain in the last year but with the situation for everyone changing all the time its not been possible.Will bide my time and wait for a good weather window as it looks a real slog. Now at three score and ten have to take every advantage and your video gives a great discription of the Mountain. :clap:

Really enjoyed your video Petr. The Scottish tourist board must love your videos. You made the right judgement the last time you went went up Beinn Sgitheall by turning back so close to the summit.As they say the mountains aint going anywhere soon. :clap: :clap:
