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.
Meall nan Tarmachan, 5 October 2008
Alan writes: It took me twenty years to compleat my round, partly because I only did one or two a year for the first few years and partly because living in Hertfordshire doesn't make for the easiest access to Scotland's mountains. Still, I got there in the end. I was accompanied on Meall nan Tarmachan by friends Andrew, Jas and Chris. Andrew had been with me on about a third of my Munro trips including the very first one, Ben Nevis, back in 1988.
