Whale Watching in Scotland - July 2012 - 8th Day Adventure [02:13]
A weekend way up in the highlands of Scotland to go whale watching in Gairloch. We were unlucky that day not to see any whales but saw plenty of Dolphins, Puffins, Seals & Eagles. Also a day hiking in Skye was spectacular. The music is 'Jailhouse Jig' by a local band called Skerryvore who we happened to see live on this weekend at a highland gathering :-)

Outdoors: Ben More (3281ft ) & Stob Binnein *Video Footage* - This was one hard day! [10:33]
Ben More (Scottish Gaelic: A' Bheinn Mhòr, meaning "the great mountain") is a mountain in the southern Highlands of Scotland, near Crianlarich. It is the highest of the so-called Crianlarich Hills to the south-east of the village, and there is no higher land in the British Isles south of Ben More. It is separated from Stob Binnein by the Bealach-eadar-dha Beinn, meaning "col between two hills". The simplest ascent starts from Benmore Farm on the A85. Initially one should follow the path leading up Benmore Burn, before leaving this path and heading up the northwest ridge of Ben More. The ridge is unrelentingly steep, rising 1000 metres (3281 ft) in about 2.5 miles (4.0 km). The north-east ridge may prove a preferable alternative, being craggier and less steep. To reach this the walker should follow the burn of Allt Coire Chaorach, before striking for the ridge of Sròn nam Fòirsairean once clear of the forestry that cloaks the lower slopes of this side of Ben More. This route is around 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) long. Source from wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org Stob Binnein is a mountain in the southern Highlands of Scotland, near Crianlarich. It forms a twin-peak with Ben More, from which it is separated by the Bealach-eadar-dha Beinn, meaning pass between two hills. Stob Binnein is often climbed in conjunction with Ben More by means of the Bealach-eadar-dha Beinn. Descent may be made from the bealach direct to Benmore Burn. It may also be climbed from the south, starting near ...
