Hillwalking on the Paps of Jura Video

An excursion to Islay's closest neighbour: They didn't have perfect weather, but they still had some great views. Neil and a friend went hillwalking on the Isle of Jura, climbing at least one of the Paps (I think they were on Beinn an Oir, the highest one at 785m). Some nice views over Jura and you also get a glimpse of the Sound of Islay.


While the music isn't entirely my style I think it fits quite well to the video and adds to the atmosphere. At approx 4:30min you can catch a glimpse of Bunnahabhain as one of the few man made things you get to see, the rest is almost entirely wild nature (apart from the rough path). And a seemingly exhausted walker resting at a burn and at the summit.

Thanks for sharing this Neil!
