Re: Classification of Munros

Thanks. That's really interesting. I thought there must be some kind of rule book. I suppose it's not out of the question that the list could change again in the future.

Re: Classification of Munros

Thanks. I had read that page but what I was looking for was the exact details of how one hill is a Munro and another is not (apart from them being over 3000').

Classification of Munros

I am giving a talk on the Munros on Thursday and need to know exactly what defines a Munro. Amount of ascent on each side, distance from adjacent Munros etc. Can anyone help?

Re: The South Etive Ridge Fail

Great report. Some undertaking. I am no expert but I think the bird you saw was a Dotterel. Saw a pair with a chick once in Drumochter. Quite an easy bird to identify and very rare.

Great report. Some undertaking. I am no expert but I think the "plover" you saw was a Dotterel. I saw a pair with a chick once in Drumochter. Quite an easy bird to identify and very rare.

Re: Caribbean weather on the Fisherfield 6

I saw that flat "tennis court" on Beinn Tarsuinn. Quite a unique feature and a great place to camp. Lack of water for about 75% of the walk might have been a problem for camping out. You could go up there 1000 times and not get weather like last week. It was beyond superb.

Re: Caribbean weather on the Fisherfield 6

Thanks Gammy.The 18 hours was total walking time car to car. Split over Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning. We carried everything. I started at 16kg and my mate 18kg. The extra weight gave us badly blistered feet which I have never had on a walk.

Re: Fish(erfield) on a Friday

Brilliant photos. Can't believe how clear it all looks. I am intending to do the Fisherfield 6 in the near future so good to get an up to date look at it. Well done on a huge walk.

Re: Glen Shee - 6 lost Munros

If it had been up to my brother we would have baled out too. Glad we made the effort in the end. It's a long way to do them again whatever way you go in.

Glen Shee - 6 lost Munros

My advice to anyone wishing to tackle these six Munros would be to chose a good day and take a GPS with you. Unfortunately we had neither despite a good forecast from a couple of days earlier. I might also recommend not doing it in November. It was pitch black when we got back to the van even though...
