Very nice underwater footage. I like the idea of combining snorkelling and hillwalking in the same trip. I’m planning to do some walking and diving in Orkney next month.

Great stuff - your ordeal with tummy trouble made me laugh (sorry)! First time I think I've seen pictures from Conival and Ben More Assynt - obviously I haven't been looking - and looks more specatacular than I thought. I love that area though, must get up there again sometime - maybe May, lockdowns permitting, before those pesky midges strike - but it's a long way from where I live in Brighton!

Stunning pictures :clap:

Those midgies tho......! Definitely help keep the pace high when walking (like 1 million little devil drill instructions...)
