Woke up at 01:00 after 2.5h of sleep and long previous working day. Nearly 4 hours of driving with a few stops for some photo and video shots. I was waiting to do this duo in drier conditions, because of the boggy terrain and pathless ascent / descent. After a week with dry days and promising forecast for weekend, the day was Saturday ! Despite the wind it was a great day out with superb views, enjoyed the long day with all the driving from home and back as because of my circumstances I must plan one day trips only.
The movie below is covering all the route, showing great views and have some photos at the End.

Hi Petr, My youngest daughter has been studying in Scotland since September. It is therefore likely that I will head to Scotland more often.:D

Used "Canon Power Shot SX740 HS" quite a good compact with a great zoom, 4K videos...but not the best focus and stabilizer when moving :roll: My older camera worked better with this, but hope to improve soon... :)
