Nice vid, and great scenery.
I'd love to do some muni in the highlands some day, I'm 1/4 Scottish by heritage.

Nice ride mate, you're sooo lucky to be living in Scotland! I'm stuck down on the pretty much flat lands of lincolnshire.
Your video answered one of my main questions though. It is possible to carry a reasonable size back pack while unicycling (what size/weight is it?)
Once i get fully into the whole municycle scene (i have a lot to buy) it'd be great to join you on a ride sometime

The pack itself was about 4kg, mainly spare clothing..... its a must hill walking here all year round as the weather is very changeable ...... the only real problem was the extra windage.... if it hadnt been windy it wouldnt have been a problem

Great Vid! And yes, you are lucky to live in Scotland! So am I!
Would be nice to meet up for a ride sometime. It is a bit of a drive from Aberdeen, but that can be done for a nice muni week-end!
