Saving The Best For Last

Every year hundreds of people take to the Scottish hills in an attempt to reach the summits of all the mountains over 3,000 feet known as Munros. It's hugely popular now, but for a long time this Munro ""bagging"" was a pastime enjoyed only by a hardy few. Mark Stephen meets some of these early Munroists and hears about the particular challenges they faced when tackling some of the most dramatic mountains in the country over fifty years ago.
