***JMF Giveaway Alert: 2 x t-shirts and 1 x hoodie available*** . . . To celebrate making it to 150 Munros since Mid-April (wahey! πŸ™Œ), the guys over at @grapplingboarclothing offered me some of their gear. But, because I'm such a friendly guy and everyone's favourite hiker (πŸ™„), I said I'd prefer to give it away to my lovely family of followers. So there is 1 men's black t-shirt, 1 women's white t-shirt, and 1 unisex hoodie up for grabs. To enter just comment on this post, tagging a friend you love going on adventures with, and a winner will be selected at random. Good luck! πŸ˜€

Waking up on the Isle of Skye this morning 😍

Today in Scotland ❀

Is Scotland on your bucketlist? 😍 . . . Views for days in the Mamores mountain range, Scotland. Up to 143/282 Munros now. Back at it today after a few rest days. Wish me luck πŸ™

Would you go hiking here? ❀ . . . I climbed 20 Munros over the past 5 days. A few horrible wet days, but a couple of glorious days too. It's been super tough - both physically and mentally - and, I'm not gonna lie, there have been some real challenges. But for all of the hardships, the mountains always provide some incredible, life-affirming moments. This was one of those amazing moments 😍

Scotland = 😍

Is hiking in Norway on your bucketlist? Who would you take with you? . . . Throwback to my trip to the amazing island of Senja last week ❀

Home for tonight ❀ . . . Wild camping in the Mamores, with @terranovaequipment

When the sun shines in Scotland 😍 . . . πŸ“½ Ben Nevis via CMD arete today

Aonach Eagach. Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt. πŸ™Œ . . . Never going back again, though 🀣 - it was beautiful and exciting, but I'm a boring, mid-30s rambler, not an adrenaline-junkie scrambler. And I'm happy with who I am. . . . 105/282 Munros

So...who wishes they were in Norway right now? 😍

Norway ❀ . . . My first ever visit to Norway - a whistle-stop tour to the island of Senja for a magazine article - and it has been incredible. Feel so blessed. Today I walked up Segla, one of the most beautiful and dramatic mountains I've ever climbed. Stunning. Sheer cliffs plunging into the fjord. Wow. 😍

Wahey, the sun came out...finally β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ . . . After 12 days of rain the sun finally came out. Woohoo. And now I've climbed 86/282 Munro's. Life is good. . . . @salomon @lekiuk #timetoplay
