A wonderful mountain. Brought tears to my eyes watching that and remembering the day I climbed it with Kath. She died the following year climbing in Torridon.

Thank you :) Not surprised that is your favourite...the mountain is wonderful with beautiful views around :D
And the film is one of my favourite too, since my childhood :D I spent some extra time editing and cutting the music to make sure the best - escalating part of "Harmonica" will start exactly when the summit of Slioch appear :wink:
