The Scottish Munro’s hold a bit of an iconic status among hill walkers and mountaineers in the UK and across Europe. To have completed a ‘Round of Munros’ is quite an achievement. Many people will spend a few years slowly ‘ticking off’ the mountains over 3000ft (916m) in latitude across Scotland.
There are ‘around’ 282 Munro mountains to bag. The number has dropped a little in recent years to to changes in mapping accuracy and the rules about what makes a Munro.
Over the years visiting Scotland, and now living there, I had climbed many of the Munros. I have no idea how many of them I have climbed and some I have climbs 3 or 4 times. So now its time to start from scratch and attempt to climb them all! This will be an 18 month to 2 year project fit around my other work and plans.
