Top trip report with cracking pics, a joy to read.
Will have to view pics on the pc at home.Not the same on a smart phone .

As for us, we have not got oot since julies fall on binnein mor. Injuries are taking longer to heal than we hoped for.

I'm hoping for a wee bothy trip over Saturday / Sunday, will now have to go and survey the weather reports.

Cheers again.


Hope Julie is better soon and you get out and about at the weekend. Weather is looking grim, just adds to the adventure though. I'm in Newtonmore this weekend.

Stay safe.

Great report dooterbang, love the videos too.
Looks like you had a perfect winter walking weather for most of it going by those views.

Yeah will definitely be tackling more hills soon. Just in the middle of writing up my report on Ben Inverveigh , with photos and everything and my laptop froze!!! Lost the lot!!! Too tired to rewrite it tonight!!

Gonna give Mount Keen a go soon. Gammy Leg has assured me its easy peasy for my sore knee. Because of my dodgy IT band I have to chose between hill walking and running around the streets of Rutherglen and Cambuslang and sometimes even Blantyre! Can't do both!!

Hope you appreciate being injury free! :?

Another stunning report DB.

HD video on your TZ10 super clear - looking to upgrade my TZ6 soon - if my kids stop bleeding dry!

Good patches of weather always a bonus - I was on Stob Binnien on same day - couldn't see my boots all day!

Well done - hope to get there in summer - lovely mountain range.

Cheers

Seems a nice camera. HD vid is fab. Doogz had the TZ10 also, seems a popular choice.
