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.

John notes: my first Munro was Buachaille Etive Mor in 1971 during my first holiday in Scotland, but I did not really start bagging Munros until 1981 on a visit to the Cairngorms with two friends (Chris Peachey on the left, and Tony Thompson on the right). The three of us have been spending one week a year in Scotland since then and it's been a great experience.
