Which one to leave for last?

Which one to leave for last?


Postby ConnieW » Fri Mar 27, 2009 9:29 pm

As a relative novice with only forty-odd munros under my belt, I wonder what you think is the munro to finish it all off with? I'd like something where others could come and join even if they are not into bagging themselves. I want to give it some thought now so that I don't do the ideal one accidentally before... :wink: Oh and it should be dog friendly because Hamish bags as well, although he will have to pass on the Inaccessible Pinnacle I think... :roll:

I'm thinking Beinn na Lap - folk could all get the train to Corrour, easy enough trek and a Youth Hostel could be booked out entirely with much fun and mirth afterwards. It would also be fun to do it in Winter!

I may steal your idea - but not for a completion, just for fun.
I know my place, and it's not visiting them all... I'll cheer you on tho!

Just be sure to check train times for going into and out from Corrour. Not desperately user friendly, if I remember correctly.

I was thinking of Beinn Bhuidhe, with a meal in the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar to celebrate... but no doubt if I'm around there and there's a good day I'll get too tempted and climb it. I'll probably end up with something annoying like Sgurr Mor (Glen Kingie). Not good if you want a beer session the same day :lol:
