If You're Planning to Bagg a Munro

Printer-friendly version

If you're planning to Bagg any Munro's in Scotland, the usually safety precautions should be taken as you would for any mountaineering activity. You don't necessarily have to be a highly equipped & experienced mountaineer but you should not into any serious routes at first and tackle the easier peaks to start with and slowly build up you fitness / stamina and also your experience.

Be sure to do research on the Munro you're going to tackle and make sure it's not out of your league as some munros need a really good head for heights and scrambling skills and it's always a good idea to have knowledge of various escape routes in-case the weather turns bad as it often does in Scotland. Always take a map and compass, don't rely as a GPS as your primary navigation tools and always take plenty of water and enough food for a night on the hills.
