Munro Compleatists


Those who complete (compleat!) the Munros can record this fact and receive the magic number by writing in to The Clerk of The List (See here). Additionally, a list of current compleaters is published annually in the SMC Journal.

Ben Lomond, 16th June 2007


Jim Writes: On 16 June 2007 I achieved my second compleation of Munros and tops.

I compleated on Ben Lomond as I started counting there on my first round on 20 September 1975 and compleated my first round on 15 August 1982 on Ben Hope. (Regretfully no photograph.) As I began and ended on most southerly and most northerly it seemed logical (so far as any part of this game is logical) to compleat the second round on the most southerly. A fine closing of the circle.

I compleated with Rab Heron, a friend since our teenage years (we're now grandparents) and wanted a photo of the two of us. We'd assumed the top of Ben Lomond would be thronged but at 10 to 5 on a Saturday afternoon we were the only ones there. Not to be defeated we used the self portrait setting on the camera and eventually produced the one I've sent. I'm the good looking one on the left with the beard and black wooly hat. Rab's the red haired one (check the eyebrows).
