So today was the day - I am a relatively new Munro Bagger and had set a target of 40 Munro's as a New Years Resolution in 2019. I dont know why the number 40 came to my head, maybe I thought it was an achievable target - or maybe just random!

So I tried my first Munro in March - Ben Wyvis. This is where the bug started, I just got going then lockdown happened.

Since then, I managed to pick off what I could, trying to make the best of the clear forecast days! Rare in Scotland :lol:
I parked at the usual spot - Glenshee Ski Center, then made the walk down the road, this meant less road walking at the end of the day and I would definitely recommend it! Would be handy to go as a pair and use two cars though!


But anyway - here is the Glas Maol Circuit, where I hit my target of 40 Munro's, and little Lexi got her 12th of the year :D



I document each and every Munro, so at the end of my journey I will have a video of every summit visited :D
Subscribe to my little channel if you would like to keep up to date with my progress - or just enjoy watching Lexi pull my arm off!
