England thy beauties are tame and domestic
To one who has roved on the mountains afar
Oh! For the crags that are wild and magestic
The steep frowning glories of dark Lochnagar.
- Lord Byron
I climbed my first mountain in Scotland at age 13 years - I had never heard of the term "Munro". Sadly, I have since been stripped of this innocence. Having almost 200 Munros under my belt, the unclimbed remainder appear rather uninspiring - I will return to the great peaks rather than further pursue this cinderella activity!
Having joined The Cairngorm Club early in 2011 - I am now enjoying a Scottish renaissance!
My Top Twenty - It is not easy to select twenty mountains from such a tremendous choice.
