I have been up here before and posted a report on Walk Highlands before. This time went with my neice over from The Netherlands & have this video report to offer. A wee tribute to Raechel really but I hope you like it.

I have stated some erroneous heights in my unrehearsed blethering in this clip. Note that the top of the Crowberry Tower is at c 960 meters (Not 880). The summit of Stobe Dearg is 1021m.
