Lots of walking, get Zena up some Munros (Moss did 20 her first year setting a hard target to beat but Zena has already bagged her first one :lol: ). Reach 50 Munros for me and Moss (only 4 for me and 6 for Moss so hopefully achievable!). And do a bit of hill-running locally with my boy!

2020 will hopefully be the year of the Corbett for me. Would like to focus on the remaining 69 that need to be ticked off and get a fair few done.....no real numbers in mind though. That hopefully means a trip to Harris this year, which might be my "big tent trip" of the year.

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.

Do some sections of longer trails, a corbett or two and some overnights in the hills to build both myself and my dog up for tackling longer trails and maybe one or two of the easier more accessible munros the following year.

My plans for the British hills are on hold after moving to Spain for work. I have been given a list of 100 emblematic mountains of Catalonia, which gives me something to focus on. I would like a trip to the Alps at some point, but the Pyrenees are the main thing.

I want to get more into scrambling and climbing routes now, try out the curved ridge, Aonach Eagach and Ben Nevis by CMD arete in the summertime.

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.

More Wainwrights. My Xmas present was a fitbit, so more days over 10,000steps.

Suilven is on the list - again, as I never got on it last year.
Hoping to do Quinag's trio
Fisherfield in may hopefully and hopefully a view from A' Mhaighdean

I got a bit fed up at times in 2019 chasing Corbetts to complete, so I'd like to be less target driven this year :roll:
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 :wink:

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.

After last years miserable Munro return, in 2020 I WILL reach 200 on my second round and hopefully help Parminder get much nearer to compleating.
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.

Gain back some hill fitness and commit to more days spent outside, trying not to let uni work overtake my entire life, 4th year of an engineering degree can do that to you it seems!.

Specific goals:
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.

Same as 2019, get out more.

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
