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.
Bidein a' Ghlas Thuill, 10th September 2007
David writes: I compleated the last of my 284 Munros by ascending Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill, sneaking off one day on a family holiday. Unfortunately the hill mist didn't quite burn off the ridge.
Thanks to the couple I met from Ireland and the Isle of Man who took this photograph, and were the only other people I met on the ridge all day.
My first Munro was Cairngorm on a school trip in 1978 or 1979. I took up hillwalking, and bagging, as a hobby proper in 1982.
