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.
Ted Spiller ó 4298
Luinne Bheinn ó 27 May 2009


The Spillers report: The photo was taken on a day of almost continual rain and low visibility. It shows Jenny Spiller (left) Ted Spiller (middle), with friend Frank Hopkirk.

Our first summit, Liathach, was climbed in Sept 1984 before we knew what Munros were, and over the next 15 years a few dozen more were slipped in during backpacking trips. On retirement in 1999 we decided to try for them all, taking our time with long approaches and wild camps. It has been a glorious and challenging experience and itís quite a surprise to find that we have finished, not being very strong or fast walkers. We climbed every summit together and were joined on a few by stalwart friends, especially Frank Hopkirk who helped carry the whisky up our last Munro, Luinne Bheinn, on 27th May 2009.
(Note from webmaster: I'm sure that's Jenny in the middle, and possibly Ted on the left, but we await confirmation)
