It wasn't intentional but - in hindsight - I think it's a worthy one for a milestone like #100.

Mine was next door...Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich. Cycled in to Bendronaig Lodge from Attadale to start off.

My hundredth was Carn a' Chlamain, but I did cycle up Glen Tilt to Forest Lodge. More significant to me was a hundred solo which was reached on Cac Carn Beag (Lochnagar) walked from Glen Callater.

:lol: :lol: I had to check out Stac Lee, I had never heard of it, but just watched the video on the TR ! Now that would be something!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap: Oldies rule OK! Buy the way I loved Beinn Starav, one of my favourite hills :D

Mount Keen in the snow can be a big undertaking! But you'll remember it well for hitting your 100 :D hope you had a great day.

I did likewise when we did the two hills, that is some long walk in! I think the bike is a must for these two, either of them well worth hitting the 100 on :D

Hi Peter, bet that made it extra special though! The 100th is a bit of a milestone anyway but to include it with all the others, nice one! :D you getting out much these days?


Yeah I am still going out with the students. Even more so.now as I have 3 , groups doing hill walking. But all the hills are around Five. I haven't been on a newlines since August. This is mainly down to my move in November

Mount Keen was no. 100 for me too.

No views so one to return to some day, maybe with my mountain bike.

Done Mount Keen a few times now, suggest if your biking go from the North, fabulous bike back, hardly any peddling at all :lol: pick a good clear day with a westerly breeze. :)

Stob Poite Coire Ardair (Creag Meagdaidh), hardly the most exciting munro & the most insignificant out of the group :(

Only took me 20 years to reach the milestone, the next 100 will only take 2 years - he says fairly confidently :lol:

Hi Fife Flyer, as you say maybe not the most exciting Munro but take the whole day experience, it would have been memorable, well planned :) I will watch your progress with interest, but give it your best shot, you should make it, it's the last fifty or so which are left to last which take the time and effort as they are normally a long travel away, good luck anyway! :D
