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.

Na Gruagaichean 9 July 2011


Richard notes: It has taken eight years using the bulk of my holidays walking 141 days. My distance has added up to 1550 miles walked and 524,000 ft climbed (taking the data out of the books, and including the ones that took several attempts)

The summit photograph includes Mum, big sister and my wife Kat, who I met just before the halfway point. It is with thanks to her support that I have been able to continue and complete during our holidays. Not only that, she's also been up 67 herself but has no plans to bag them all. It has been a fantastic experience, with memories re-lived on every trip. The adventure was made a lot easier by purchasing a small van several years ago which has been our home on wheels throughout. We'll keep doing a few of our favourites, amongst trips to islands, bothies and backpacking, but there's no way I'll try to go for the Corbetts or another round.
