Discover Scottish Munro Bagging + WIN A SCOTLAND SCRATCH PRINT
Written by Jaillan Yehia
Think you’ve heard of every travel trend going? Well think again.
Because there’s a niche new travel trend for keen walkers and hikers who love exploring north of the border: and it’s called Munro bagging.
For the uninitiated, Scotland’s Munros are mini-mountains and high hills (3,000 ft or taller) with amazing views of the lochs and moors – perfect for rare wildlife spotting and soaking up the beauty of the Highlands.
Bagging yourself a Munro literally means navigating to the top, to conquer the peak – whether it be on a signposted pathway at one of the easier Munros, or through forests, nature reserves and bogs for more hardy walkers.
Places like Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park are popular places to start because of their famed natural beauty but collecting all the Munros is the long term goal for many.
Named after Sir Hugh Munro, the chap who first charted the hills back in 1891, locations stretch all the way to the North of Scotland; imagine how surprised Sir Hugo would be to see maps of his namesake mountains causing such a stir in 2018.
If you fancy bagging a few Munros for yourself, or just want a beautiful map of Bonnie Scotland to adorn your wall, you can enter the competition to win this Munro Bagging Scratch Print by the expert map makers at Maps International.
