Great stuff. Now I feel really old thinking back to twenty years ago when I first did this walk.

1st R8 moo-V M8! I finished my Corbetts on Rum in May 1999 although Walkhighlands tells me I've never been up them. Och well, maybe it was all a dream except, what's this???

Looks like Askival with An t-Eilean Sgitheanach in the background. Well done and many thanks for the excellent video and appropriate music. (Excuse my pic, just copied from print to phone and then to laptop. Not much of a techie I am afraid.)
