Bagging my 3rd (Ben Narnain) and 4th Munro (Ben Chonzie)


I couldnt stop at 2 Munro’s I wanted to see how many I could do, and I managed to bag 4 Munro’s in a month which is good going for me.

See my previous post here to see what my first two Munro’s were.

My 3rd Munro was Ben Narnain (926M (3,038 FT)

For me this was probably the hardest out the 4, as there were parts you had to climb more and it felt steeper but that could have just been me.

At one part near the start I will admit I nearly gave up, as I have been going through a rough patch recently and it hit me very hard all the emotions etc, plus the day I was doing this I should have been celebrating something else which sadly I wasn’t.

The people I was with, gave me lots of support and I found the strength in the them and in me to go onward and upwards.

I was so glad that I did as the view from the top, plus the feeling of achieving another Munro was amazing. I would have preferred to celebrate the other thing, but this was the next best thing.

My 4th Munro was Ben Chonzie (931m (3,054 ft)

After experiencing Ben Narnain this got me to mentally prepare and be ready for anything, as they were all different so far.

This was an interesting one, firstly the route there was a long narrow winding road and this had a path for about 80% of it.

The first 60% was a nice little walk then you started to feel the incline, and then it was marsh to the top. Today as you will see from the photos below, was very cloudy so I knew not to expect a great view but hey it was still my 4th Munro.

This Munro was my first where I actually had the correct gear, as the previous ones I wore my jeans and didn’t have gaiters etc but this one all my gear arrived and worked well 🙂

I enjoyed this one as it was more of a walk than climb, as it allowed me to just focus on where I was going rather than many things at once.

I will need to get some new hiking boots, but for now these ones will be fine.
