I'll look forward to reading about your adventures with the grahams :D :D
Thanks HnP. I've got a few Grahams plans, fingers crossed, but need to try to shake off some back problems and get fit again so that I can get out :roll: - cheers :)

With 112 Munros still to go, 61 years on the clock, and living down south, it’s unlikely that I’d ever be able to match your achievements but I did manage Quinag a few years back and it remains one of Scotland’s best hill days for me. Thanks for a great post.
Thanks 2mY. Would agree with you on Quinag. As Graeme says below re your hills, you never know what might happen - cheers :)

Another excellent report. I like the clustered and stacked bar charts coloured deep sky blue and orange/red sunset. You've made a lot of use of July, I see. Epic journey(s) that must have brought you a lot of great experiences. Thank you sharing the write-ups! All thoroughly enjoyed.

Thanks Sgurr. Think that's me taking a break from lists - won't ever be in your league ! - cheers :)


We are all in different leagues, thank goodness rockhopper. We have never been in your wild camping league. I pretend it's because R doesn't like it, but I don't really think it's fun to strap a whole load of gear on your back and then start tangling with beasties, damp and on one occasion damp-proof matches where we didn't realise we had to scrape the wax off them first and ended up eating next day's sandwiches in a grump. This wild camp was worth several Marylins ,but who's keeping the records anyway?

Congratulations on completing the Corbetts! What a way to do it and a lovely set up hills. Still remember them fondly. Reading how long it took you to complete them gives me hope! Lovely report and photos! :clap:

A young family has temporarily reduced available days of exploration for us. I enjoyed the statistics as I am a geek at heart...currently on +20yrs and 13yrs for Munros and Corbetts respectively..... but who knows, many other demands of time!
Thanks NN. I know the "problem" well - young family took me away from the hills for nearly 20 years - still plenty of time for you - cheers :)

When I started peak bagging in the late 80's you could drive round and get B&B (no such thing as booking) sometimes for as little as fiver a head :D :lol:
Those days sadly are long gone and while I've done almost all the hills within a days drive of Perthshire, venturing further afield is now rather expensive :( - I'm past camping but may be a campervan is the answer
Thanks pmsbd. Yes, I can remember the days of just turning up - not always successful with the first but generally OK. We've thought about a campervan but just not sure whether we'd like it. Good luck if you do - cheers :)

Now for those Grahams ...bet you will #fullhouse 8)
Thank colla. I see you're fairly getting through the Corbetts. Hope to walk some more Grahams but am sure I'll never finish them - cheers :)

Thanks lj. Have been using excel since the 1980s and couldn't resist it - the monthly chart is sort of a normal distribution - cheers :)

Thanks RS. Getting reasonable photos is so much easier with decent weather - was pretty lucky in that respect as I just need to point and shoot - cheers :)

Congratulations, rockhopper. In many ways, a mighty fine and very fitting completion...location, hill choice, weather, history/memories, etc., among them. :clap:
Imagine it came as some relief the other pair weren't actually "finishing" on Spidean Coinich?! :wink:
