Bidean nam Bian 2017 (Digby Harris)


This is a circuit of the 16 Munros which encircle Glen Etive, just south of Glen Coe.  It was devised and completed by Digby Harris on 2nd September 2017. He covered some 46 miles of arduous mountain terrain with 25,000 feet of ascent in a solo, unsupported run taking 23-20.  A full account of the run was published in The Fellrunner - see the link below. Majka Kunicka (DPFR) and Jon Gay (Lochaber AC) completed the round in a reduced time of 22-15 on 7/8 July 2019.



A schedule of 16 munros including grid references, heights, distances and times is included in Digby Harris's Fellrunner article - see link below.
