A trip to my local island, Ailsa Craig, would also be nice, to bag that summit too.
Beyond that I need to reconnect with quality over quantity.....got too focussed on numbers in recent years and would like to get back to a place where I can feel more connected to the area I'm walking in rather than just bagging summits.

Ticked off 110 munros in 2019, dont think I will get anywhere near that amount in 2020 as the one left to complete are getting further from Glasgow. I do want to experience Torridon as i've never been there, only ever seen the mountains from far away.

Of course, having said that, I have 76 Munros left to finish round three, which would be nice to do.
I've been planning out routes for (almost) all the Marilyns I have left over the last few nights, so making inroads on the 158 that separate me from the magical number of 1000 Marilyns would also be good. And some more Simms, but that goes without saying
I enjoyed the wild camps we did this year and would like to get more of them in - including one on Hoy in the summertime.

I WILL also polish off the final 6 Marilyn's south of the Central Belt and maybe even get across the Clyde to Ailsa Craig.

1. Finish the Angus hills off!
2. Explore some new areas, even if its just small hills, I don't really know any of the ranges outside the Cairngorms at all and they are building up in my mind as big and scary which is silly, the only way I can think to cure this is to get out there and see what like.
3. Get at least one bothy night in.
4. More camping wild or otherwise, this will probably tie in nicely with number 2.

Last year was unlucky with holidays. Weather primarily.
This year I will seek out areas I have not been to or have not seen enough of. Which is most places. One visit to some are not enough.
Some Island visits would be good too. Just get out and enjoy the views which is what I go for.

The only boat that goes at a reasonable price( MV Glorious) also has a tendency to ditch you if more paying customers with a different agenda come along (e.g. fishermen), so it is best to see if you can fill the boat i.e. advertising here as well as on the Meets thread. We got to go on the third attempt. 1. Scratched due to not enough
2. Scratched due to wind too high and from wrong direction
