Munro Completion

Completion of the 283 Munros with 10 year old Ben, 29 August 2011

Probably my proudest achievement has been to celebrate the success of my son, Ben in climbing all 283 Munros at the age of 10.  This is quite some achievement for a ten year old as it involves over 1400 miles and 500,000 feet of ascent in total, with a lot of rough and challenging terrain.  We finished on a poor day on Ben More, Mull, marking the occasion by taking a stone from the ocean and swapping it with a stone from the summit cairn which we returned to the sea.  Its been a great journey together over a 4 and a half year period.  I've catalogued our Munro bagging here.
