Mountains, Gandalf!

In November 2014 I bagged my first ‘Furth Munro’ without really thinking about it. A Munro is a Scottish mountain over 3000 ft. A Furth Munro is a mountain over 3,000 ft. in the British Isles that would qualify for Munro status if it were located in Scotland.

With a few days of leisure in the Lake District, my best friend and I wanted to go for a good long walk. We were close to Helvellyn so it seemed entirely natural that we should get to the top since it was a perfect day for it.

It was only afterwards that I wondered how high Helvellyn actually was, and that’s when I realised we’d completed our first ‘Munro!’ I’m now quite keen to do ‘Munro bagging'; climb all 282 Munros in Scotland and all 34 Furth Munros. Sounds like a challenge!
