Re: Record attempt: Slowest compleation, 14349 days and coun

I climbed Ben Nevis in July 1970, and completed on Ben Hope on 26th August 2019, giving a Munro round in just over 49 years - 17,931 days (+/- 7 days, as I can't remember the exact date in 1970 :oops: ).

Re: Name that Loch!

I'm probably wrong :roll: but I'd ruled out Afton, Talla and Fruid as the tree placement didn't seem right. Megget seems too big compared to the photo but will try that just in case. That's it. Megget Reservoir taken from the dam. :clap: The apparent small size is just a function of foreshortening....

Sorry, neither of those. It is a reservoir, but much further north east.

Toll a’Choin on Maoile Lunndaidh, seen from Scardroy?

Close enough. It is Coire Loch nam Breac Dearga. As you say, the photo was taken from Scardroy.

Your go.

Clue: The Munro summit is not the Marilyn summit for this hill. The Munro summit is not the highest point. The highest point was re-assigned in 2014.

Re: Name that Corrie!
