Saved this Munro for day like today...and it was brilliant ! the boggs forgotten - rewarded by the perfect autumn views all directions.

Fantastic vid and great timing - as I'm heading up that way on Sunday night for a few days. It's one (of the 6 or 7 routes) I've marked out to do.
Hopefully I get as goid views as yourself.
Great zoomed in shot of Slioch- one I've yet to get on.
Cheers
