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.
David & David Gilchrist - 3665 & 3664
8th September 2006 - Ben More (Mull)


David Snr writes: My son and I both Compleated the Munros yesterday (8/9/6) by ascending Ben More (Mull) in excellent weather - that is apart from the 2 hours we spent on the summit when it was shrouded in mist. My son (David Sinclair Gilchrist - born 11/7/83) climbed his first Munro (Ben Vorlich above Loch Earn) when he was 4. We did not start Munro "˜bagging' until 1993, when he was 10. At that time we made a deal that I would reward him with £5 for every Munro climbed - that was quite a lot of money then for a 10-year old! So yesterday I parted with my last fiver.

In 1993 I did not believe we would climb every Munro so I am now £1420 out of pocket. In 1999 we reached an agreement that we would walk all new Munros together and therefore we have now both compleated all the Munros on the same day. We compleated the vast majority between 2000 and 2006 when David was at University. We have also walked 42 Corbetts and I plan to go and do them all. David however has just started full time employment so it looks like I may be doing a few days on the hill by myself. Just to add some confusion my name is also David (David Andrew Gilchrist born 7/1/52).
