Three Munros.........just three Munros.........three very specific Munros mind, but just the three of them :lol:

Oh, and the last 4 New Donalds that I still have to visit.

Beyond that to just keep regularly knocking off Corbetts, Grahams and Sub 2000s throughout the year.

.....but if I still haven't compleated the Munros by the end of [replace 2018 with] 2019 I should seriously consider hanging up my boots :oops: :oops: :oops:

Saves typing it all out again :lol: :lol:

"Three Munros........just three Munros....." said I at the start of the year..........and I finally managed them back in May :D

Managed to tick off the four remaining Donald tops too, which finally put them to bed. Slightly disappointed with my Corbett and Graham progress during the year, so they will be the focus of 2020 (hopefully)

Done except Ulva, Gometra and Inch Kenneth which I only saw from the opposite shore but did not set foot on.

I will also try and polish off as many Marilyns south of the Central belt as possible, only trouble - they are either in the south west or west.

2019 hasn't been the best year for escaping to the great outdoors, ended up 32 Munro's short of my ambitious target - I blame the weather.
The good news is I managed quite a few Marilyn's, end result only 6 left south of the Central Belt.

Primarily I need to make use of my holidays and get back to the north west coast. Wester Ross, Assynt and Sutherland.

Better planning of journeys is also a goal.

Well, can't say I did too well. I did get back out to the west coast but planning is still terrible. Of course weather also played a part, so unlucky with cloud cover and rain.

In the end, my worst hillwalking year in a long time. A knee injury put paid to the annual winter Highlands trip, and the only other times I got into the hills were lower level. I did manage a nice short overnighter beneath Fan Brycheiniog.

However, had some good alternative adventures, especially canoeing and portaging across Inverpolly at Easter, which was completely mad and a superb week and a bit in which we spoke to just one other lady and her kids.
