Hi fourpads
Some nice footage in there . Reminds me of my many trips to Bidean over the years. I always did it clockwise going up the Lost Valley first which helped on the Bidean descent. Cracking walking companion you have there as well. Cheers .

Thanks for your video. I did this one last week (7th Sept) but, whilst it wasn't raining, the summits were shrouded in cloud so no views at all. I met up with another couple of folk on the summit of Bidean (they started behind me, but must have taken a by-pass once we got to the top of the corrie) and joined them for the remainder of the walk, thinking it would be safety in numbers given the cloud was so extensive. The path was easy enough to follow pretty much all the way, and I completed in about 7 hours. It would have been good to see the views though!
