Here is the video of Walk aboot, Mikeyb0305, and myself...Mountainstar, all I'll say is we all had a great day, and well done to Mike for doing his 1st Munro :thumbup: and to Janet for just getting up there :clap: although it did take a lot of coaxing! This was the start of out Walkhighlands Roy Bridge meet weekend...and what a start!
I'll leave the TR to Janet, she's far better that them than I am (See what I mean!):(

Thanks for this. I have Buachaille Etive More "booked" for my final Munro so the video should encourage my friends to join me.

Nice walk on a reasonable day. You got good views from the summit. Great choice of munro for Mikes first one and Janets doing a munro she never thought she would. Success all round. Great vid again. :thumbup:

I think yours was the 3-person group who were on the summit when I reached it last Friday and you kindly offered to take my picture. You mentioned WalkHighlands - and I have duly joined. Interesting site - Even though the hills are 600 miles away, one can do a few virtual munros any time at the click of a mouse.......
