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.
Charles Craig 4888
Ben More (Mull) 10 September 2011


Charles writes: I compleated a round which began with school hillwalking outings in 1978, many weekend meetings with the Glasgow section of the JMCS, and more recently days together with my son.

I was accompanied by 12 friends including David Grant and Wallace Cuthbertson with whom I had done some of my first ascents as part of Hyndland School Hillwalking Club, fellow JMCS members Neil Craig,Neil Wilkie,Matt Munro,Iain Thomson,Sandy Donald, John Porter and Davie McDonald. My girlfriend Tomoko Iwata JMCS and LSCC member, Wallace`s son Wallace jr and my son Charles jr.

An uninvited guest was the remains of Hurricane Katia which caused much damage to our tents on Friday night as we camped on the shore of Loch Na Keal and shortened the time spent in celebration on the summit.

Amongst my party I was now the fifth compleater, but such is the popularity of Ben More for compleation that I shared the hill on that day with the party of John Mulgrew who for the record ascended some thirty minutes before me.
