Just made this video below as "all in one" - all the four days in one movie to refresh some good memories...
and get motivated for something like this...hope soon...?!!



Back in September 2015...My Brother arrived in Glasgow Airport @ 22:40 finally from Prague.
After my work, I picked him up and we got home shortly after .
Then after late dinner we discussed all possibilities about the upcoming
Adventure, I showed him some pictures, routes and timing and
after checking the most recent Weather Forecast we
decided to start our Big Journey immediately without any sleep.
Prepared all our mountains stuff, routes and food & drinks on
the way, refreshed by colder shower we started @ 01:00 am
the long way to Isle of Skye.......
I wanted him to experience some of the finest scottish mountains and
also different kind of mountain & terrain for every day.

This was the Plan...and then happened: :D :wink: :D

Day 1: Isle of Skye - Bla Bheinn ( Blaven ) one rocky Munro,
back to Glasgow and enjoy the World's premiere of movie Everest
at 16:30 in Cinema ( I had the tickets already for it ), then back home for some refreshment...
