Bob Lane, Solihull Scout County’s Mountaineering advisor, has hit a historic milestone – after 27 years he has reached the summit of all 282 Scottish Munros – summits over 3,000 feet. The last one was Sgùrr Mòr in the Scottish Highlands, and Bob described the weather at the summit as “horrid, winds gusting to 50mph and rain which hurt”. Bob is shown at the summit with his two sons, and his achievement reflects his deep love of the mountains, which he has passed on to many young people over his years of volunteering with Solihull Scouts and as secretary of the Scout Association’s Mountain training centre at Hafod in Snowdonia.
David Lodwig, Solihull County Commissioner, commented “This is an amazing achievement that more than lives up to Scouts living the adventure. Many congratulations to Bob on reaching this milestone, and we look forward to helping more young people in Solihull experience the adventure of the mountains of the UK and beyond
