Well done guys impressive stuff. I've stayed at the bothy at Carnmore a couple of times. It's a great area.
Brilliant video, love the footage of the causeway. You certainly picked the right date to walk on water. :shock:

Energy sapping enough to contemplate doing this pair on one long summer's day, but winter............words fail. Many congratulations. See you forgot the mistletoe...hope some Xmas pudding was in your pack.

Good grief, that's a long day. Still, arguably less arduous than preparing the Christmas Turkey...

Superb effort, great report. :clap:
