My story

A Munro is a mountain in Scotland over 3000ft (914.4m).

I'm going to try and climb 22 of them in 2022 as part of AdoptionUK's 22 in 22 campaign. I'll give regular updates when I can and anyone who'd like to join me on a day out please let me know!

AdoptionUK enables people whose lives involve adoption to access the connections, support and influence they need and deserve. Funds raised will help this vitally important work for a frequently overlooked and misunderstood community.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Adoption UK.

A glorious (but bitterly cold) day close to Dalwhinnie in the Southern Cairngorms. Two more hills added to the total. Carn na Caim and A'Bhuidheanach Bheag. Straightforward ascent and some fun crossing the plateau between the summits...and also some horribly slushy going on thawing snowpack too.

812m ascent. Munro 3+4 of 22.

A proper Winters day out with great views promised. Sufficiently hopeful off I went to Lochearnhead to climb Ben Vorlich from Edinample. A harder day with the need for Crampons and Ice Axe for the last 200mt push to the summit. A little out of my comfort zone at times but a fabulously memorable day. Also managed to walk off the hill and to an instructor at an outtdoor Centre in Perth I didn't know about - Might be a good fit for a day out! Not sure I could claim overtime though for networking...

A great start to the challenge on 16th January when a weather window allowed for an easy tick near Dalwhinnie. Only not such an easy tick as several months of relative inactivity and Covid shrinking my clothes demonstrated my (lack of) fitness.

Meall Chuaich is a fairly uninspiring mountain (though blessed with a high start point) and sits in an ecological desert of Grouse moor. When the highlight is a strange viaduct linked to the local Hydro scheme you know the hill isn't too memorable. Oh, and the cloud closed in at the summit robbing us of a view...

630mts climbed. Munro 1 of 22
