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.
Les Reilly , 4560
Slioch , 19 June 2010


Les reports: I (5th from the left) compleated my last Munro with some friends and family on an absolutely stunning day on 19th June 2010. Twenty-one folks made the effort to come with me and camp near the foot of Slioch. Eleven of us made it to the top including my two laddies, Leslie and Paul, aged three and one.

My big Cousin Richie (3rd from the left) took me out on my first Munro which was Bidean nam Bian in Glencoe in September 1997. I was compleatly hooked. It's amazing that my big cousin took me out on my first Munro, and we never managed another walk together until my last Munro.

I was also absolutely over the moon that my second youngest brother Tom (2nd from the left) managed to come along. We were doing a charity walk across the ten Munros on the Mamores on the 3rd June 2000 when Tom tripped and fell from the top of the An Garbanach ridge on the Ring of Steal. He fell 500ft from the top and was seriously injured. He took a year to recover and it was five years before he went out on another hill again.

In 2003 I was given a Kilt by a friend in the Highlands. Since then I have been climbing the Munros in the Kilt in all weathers. It just feels like the natural and only way for me to be on the hills. I love it. I would like to do the Munros all over again.
