Munro Bashing

I seem to have become a Munro ‘ticker’, almost by accident. It began when Sarah was looking for a walking partner for a trip to the Loch Monar hills, to tick a couple of the more remote Munros… I fell in love with the freedom and remoteness of walking in Scotland, and thus an obsession was born. I would like to tick all the Munros in my lifetime. Not because I want the bragging rights, but because of the possibilities for exploring the landscape that this quest opens up. The hills of east Scotland are different in character to those of the west. Different rock types take on different forms, and the history of use adds its own flavour to every hill, as does the weather one experiences them in.

A note on bothies…

There are bothies mentioned in these trip reports. In all cases these are MBA maintained and their location published on the MBA webpage, so I see no conflict of ethics in mentioning them here. If I ever encounter a non-MBA, non-advertised bothy, I will be a lot more careful with that information.
