First priority complete the Donalds, only 11 left that will involve at least 4 trips back to Dumfries & Galloway.
After that I don't have any plans or ambitions, will probably be back on the Munro trail with the occasional Corbett thrown in

Have much accumulated holiday which vanishes around April, so want to get a longer walk (wildcamping) undertaken.

1. Forcan ridge
2. Aonach Eagach
3. South Glenshiel ridge- which I will be doing for the charity I like to support
4. A couple of the biggies in the cairngorms
Also hope my lad comes out a bit more. He wants to go up The Ben- he doesn't know yet that I'll be taking him over CMD if the weathers good.

- Climb 72 munros next year to get to the last 50, although i'd be delighted with 200.
- Mullardochs over 3 days with a tent/bivvy
- Finish the munros east of the A9
- Do the Aonach Eagach again on a better day
- A summit camp
Pretty similar to 2016 tbh

Beyond that, just enjoy the hills and see how many Corbetts, Grahams and sub 2000s I can visit

Some longer camping trips incl summit camps
See an otter
Try to get to the far north
Try to get to an island
That'll do for now - all the best to everyone for 2017 - cheers

I know I will never finish the Marilyns because of the St. Kilda sea stacks, but having done 1515/1557, I think I am within spitting distance of doing the rest, which would be nice. Some are hideously complicated to get at, and at least one is now beyond me unless we drag in a tent, so not a foregone conclusion.

The wee list of hopes contains:
A Munro or two on Skye
Lurg Mhor & Cheesecake
Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan
some bike & hike combos
stay fit, avoid injuries and knee bashing
If I tick off half of that list I'll be happy

and keep chipping away at the mariyns, humps, and sims.

2. Use the tent and other camping necessaries
3. Achieve 100 munroes over the course of this the year
4. Do not be put off that they are getting further and further away from home, ( refer to section 2. for solution.....)
5. Continue to believe that adverse weather is not bad weather
6. Know when 5. is wrong and I have to turn back
7. Enjoy this great country, even though it took me so long to appreciate what we have!

I also really want to have a trip to somewhere else in England - the Howgills or Yorkshire Dales or even the Peak District.
I'm not sure about setting a number on Munros, because I never seem to climb any anyway, but I don't want to do none. Maybe I'll set the target at 5!
Hopefully at least 10 Donalds - a cluster of 9 round Moffat, and whatever else takes my fancy.
I suppose I might as well list these last two Pentland Marilyns!
I'd like to get to a part of Scotland where I've never been before - hopefully the Cairngorms, but maybe Skye as well (where I have been but not to the hills) since I'm thinking of going to a summer school course at Sabhal Mor Ostaig.
I'm planning to walk the Cleveland Way in April - maybe I'll finally get round to the Berwickshire Coast Path as well, or start heading north on the Fife Coast Path.
