With a fantastic forecast, the weather didn't let me down on a near perfect day on Beinn a Bheithir.

Easy walking through the forest at the start, until the first real test was a steep snow bank up to the belach.

From there it was a wonderful day of stunning views, great ridges, and a few friendly fellow walkers, plus reaching my 25th and 26th Munro.

The only hairy moment, was my choice of a 'quick' route down through the forest, which proved to be the most challenging part of the day, as the trees got thicker, and no path appeared, I ended up scaring a few local dog walkers, when I eventually stumbled out the woods.

Enjoy the video!

Great report with fantastic photos and video, you obviously know what you are doing with a camera.
I have these two pencilled in for doing this year possibly in the spring.
Saturday was a great day for walking but I only got as far as the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh but I still enjoyed the walk.
