Hey people

I'm not sure how many contributors on this site are from Scotland, or keen visitors to Scotland, but it would be great to start up some threads on the Munros or Corbetts(albeit there are many to talk about) but it would be a great way to get tips on alternative paths; meet up with folk; good places to stay; timescales etc. The books are excellent but not quite the same as being able to have a good chat about them.

I would have thought the West Highland Way would have been the place to talk about MUNROES AND CORBETTS.

Where I live in Argyll there are many mountains over 3000ft within a few minutes drive/walk.
There's also many good low level walks. I'm always keen to go out for a day, especially in the Glencoe area. I can recommend the walk over the Devil's Staircase from Glen Coe (and/or Kings House Hotel) to Kinlochleven; Bridge of Orchy to Kings House; Lost Valley scramble to the Bidean Ridge. Should any one fancy any of these (or similar) I would be pleased to come along.
You may be interested to know that there was a snow covering on Ben Nevis last week.

Just because the west highland way and the munros are in Scotland does not put them in the same walk - seeing as there are 284 munros and the whw is only 95 miles - certainly not covering all 284 munros.

If this was the case then we should talk about all of the fells in the same section as the coast to coast - instead of 'other walks'.

Munro does not have an 'e' on the end either :-p

Sparnel - I love going walking in Glencoe - the buachaille range are terrific.

The Ullapool mountains are amazing - although very very long walks in. Bean Dearg; Cona Mheall and Meall nan Ceapraichean are my favourite to date - it's quite a walk at 24km and 1524m of ascent - but the main walking is done during the walk in.

I'm still yet to brave the Torridon Hills - although from what I hear I will fall in (hopefully not off) love with them.

Tomorrow I'm off to the Crianlarich hills and will hopefully do Beinn Chabhair - it's a nice walk and not too strenous - plus one of the smaller munros. If you are around give us a wave.

Red...

Just thought that people interested in munros and corbetts would be more likely to click onto WHW, seeing as they are in that area.

I stand corrected on the spelling. [img]http://www.coast2coast.co.uk/ubb/tongue.gif[/img]

That's okay - I'll forgive you.

Sorry - was just jumping on the defensive over the wee country. It doesn't feel so 'wee' when you are trying to bag all of these munros ;-)

I haven't been counting corbetts - although I still climb them cause they are still such beautiful walks and sometimes much harder (take Ben Loyal in Sutherland).

I have many many more munros to go :-( But I hopefully have many many years left in me so no rush yet :-D

Not too many Munros to go [c30]. The original plan last year had been to finish this year but events got in the way and next year is out until July at the earliest.

Like you, I haven't kept a count of the Corbetts but I know I haven't done a great many. Just need to find the inclination to work through my diaries!
