Bruce’s Journey to Compleation

In awe of his achievement (I just go along for the walk and fresh air occasionally), I formulated a list of questions for Bruce and last night got him to humour me and share his journey. When and how did your Munro journey begin? August 2009. Clare and I used to do a lot of … Continue reading Bruce’s Journey to Compleation

Meall nan Tarmachan: Bruce Compleats the Munros!

Yet another early start saw us on the 8 am boat from Knoydart back to Mallaig. Meall nan Tarmachan was our target for the day.

Exciting times lay ahead … Continue reading Meall nan Tarmachan: Bruce Compleats the Munros!

Company was good and we enjoyed chatting to others, whiling away … Continue reading Prologue: West Highland Way

Grey Corries, Fort William

Having checked out the weather forecast for the weekend we were left with no alternative. Alarm set for 5 am, it was a ridiculously early start (all the more so for those of us on holiday!) in order to head for Spean Bridge. These have been on Bruce’s radar for a few years now, but … Continue reading Grey Corries, Fort William

2018 Fort William Marathon – As good as I remembered and then some!

A week has passed since I completed the 2018 Fort William Marathon, my second attempt at this beautiful race. Having loved it in 2017, I signed up for 2018 pretty much immediately afterwards, my main fear going into the race that it might not be as good as I remembered and I'd be disappointed. Fear … Continue reading 2018 Fort William Marathon – As good as I remembered and then some!
