The record for the youngest completion of a Munro round has been broken this weekend by a nine-year-old boy... with a bit of help from his Dad.
On Friday he told STV News that he enjoys it because:
'I get to spend time with my Dad, and sometimes get lovely views... and that's about all.'
The former youngest Munroist was Ben Fleetwood, who finished the lot back in 2011, aged 10 (see here on UKH).
