some rather apt music there, scoob - certainly looked a "perfect day" - good to see these hills in their winter coats under a blue sky - cheers :)

There's something special about doing those 3 by train. I found it hard going getting to Beinn na Lap from Sgor Gaihbre but it's a great area to go walking in. I'm watching this at work so there's no sound but it looks magnificent 8)

It was a tough climb to Beinn na Lap after crawling through the trees :shock: :lol:
It's one of my finest soundtracks, just ask my facebook friends :lol:
