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.
Michel Van Herck - 5940
Ben Hope - 28 April 2016


Michel recounts a touching tale of mutual respect that occurred soon after his completion:
After I did my last Munro my wife and I continued our journey through Scotland, we had a coffee stop in Portree where we met an older couple, we talk to each other, the man was 85 she was 80 years old, the man asked what brought us to Scotland,my wife said that I had just finished my last Munro, he stood up from his chair, came to me, congratulated me and gave me a hug, told me, well done man.
This moment I will never forget, a man of 85 years old, someone who demonstrated so much respect, he is a great man.
He told me, that he had walked all the Munros too, but many years ago, and how difficult it can be sometimes.
It was a beautiful moment for us.
