283 hills, 1,191 miles, 443,000 ft in 88 days: – the fastest Munro round by an OAP.
On 6 July Gerry McPartlin completed a record-setting sponsored round of the Munros for the David Gemmell Living Memorial Fund.
So far the walk has raised around £35,000. It is hoped that the series of illustrated talks, detailed below, will help him towards his target of £50,000.
