The Munros – some of Scotland’s finest hills

The Munro’s – thanks Sir Hugh

It was a race to finish
A list to complete
for a name in a book

For years we took you for granted
Like a lover
Then gone.

So many great memories
Now the hills are battered
By so many feet ?

Who are we to criticise
We have all used you?

For many the first
Like love it is life changing?

So many are now enjoying
What we had when young.

Go and have fun and savour
Those Munro days in the sun .

Heavy summit Scheallion 24 July 2014

On 8 round – still single married to the mountains!
