First trip report on here albeit in the form of a video :D

If you are only interested in the jaggy bits of the Arran mountains then feel free to skip the first two minutes or so...

Great video orion, thought there was going to be a bit of a splash at that river crossing (around 2 minute mark).....saved by the pole. Stunning views from the top, that 'sweep round' about 4 min 20 secs and again at 4 - 40 stunning, great stuff :D
