Hiking with kids

Planning a yomp up a hill given the fine weather. It’ll be Munro number x for the pair of us, the 3rd for the kids. For the uninitiated, a Munro is a Scottish mountain over 3000 feet high. There are 282 or 3 of them now. When I started there were 285 but survey technology has improved over the years and some have been declassified. Still, Hugh Munro, the person who set about classifying them, didn’t do too bad. I wonder what he would have thought of his legacy? Would people still be as keen to climb them if they were just hills on the skyline and not Munro’s?

Anyway… key to get the kids up one now their legs are strong enough is to distract them… And keep drip feeding them chocolate!
