Hi scoob999

Loved the video and a bit of Capercaillie thrown in (what was the 1st track??) as well.

It's years since I was on Vrackie and conditions were a bit different. A warm summer's day, got to the top, took my rucksack off and sat down to take in the view. I could hear rustling behind me and looked round to see two wild goats one of which stuck his head in my rucksack, pulled out my corned beef sannies and the two of them had a good meal. Then just to rub it in they came over to where I was sitting and lay down either side of me for a snooze in the warm sunshine. Sadly, I think the goats are long gone now (don't think it was due to my sandwiches).

Looks like you had good fun!!
