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.
Gerry Carroll - 5032
Sgorr na h-Ulaidh - 2012
From L-R : Donald Grant, Gerry Carroll, James Walsh, John Diffey
Having taken up hill walking some 30 years ago in 1982 I spent decades studiously avoiding "bagging" and it was only in the last two years that I decided to complete them once and for all. My first munro was Sgorr Nam Fiannaidh in 1982 so it felt right to keep Sgorr na h-Ulaidh as my last.
Many thanks to all those people over the years that I have shared days out on the hills with. My final count revealed that I have completed over 160 of the Munros twice already - perhaps I will now spend some time doing a second round?
