The first in our series about becoming a munro bagger. By Beth Thomas.
After reading an article in TGO magazine early last year I decided to become a Munro bagger. This is not as creepy as it sounds. A Munro is a mountain in Scotland of a height of at least 3,000ft and there are 282!
The article in question was on the Charlie Ramsey Round, a fell run challenge covering 24 Munros in under 24 hours! However I am not a superhuman and neither was the author of the article who wrote about walking it in 4 days. Even this looked like a challenge, a beautiful, tough wild camp challenge. It was a good 12 months before this plan came to fruition when I convinced my dutiful and just as unassuming partner to do it with me.
Day 1- Expect the unexpected!
