Munro

The Munros of Scotland present challenging conditions to hikers, particularly in winter. A popular practice amongst hillwalkers is "Munro bagging", the aim being to climb all of the listed Munros. As of 2013, more than 5,000 had reported completing their round. The first continuous round of the Munros was completed by Hamish Brown in 1974, whilst the current holder of the record for the fastest continuous round is Stephen Pyke, who completed his 2010 round in just under 40 days.

Alice Ann Munro ( / ˈ æ l ᵻ s ˌ æ n m ʌ n ˈ r oʊ / , née Laidlaw / ˈ l eɪ d l ɔː / ; born 10 July 1931) is a Canadian short story writer and Nobel Prize winner. Munro's work has been described as having revolutionized the architecture of short stories, especially in its tendency to move forward and backward in time. [3] Her stories have been said to "embed more than announce, reveal more than parade." [4]

On Walkhighlands, you can record all your Munro ascents here on your own interactive baggers map, and keep a diary, complete with photos, maps and your gps tracks, to store your record of all your walking exploits. We feature the Corbetts, Grahams and other hills as well.
