Mountaineer Anna Wells is FIRST woman to reach top of all Scotland’s 282 Munros

Mountaineer Anna Wells has become the first woman to have reached the top of all of Scotland’s 282 Munros in one winter season

The 34-year-old, from Inverness, took 83 days to complete what is called the Winter Munro Round.

Starting on 22 December, the qualified mountaineering instructor had to finish her challenge before the end of astronomical winter on 20 March.

Injuries, a bout of ill health and 87mph winds threatened to scupper her bid.

A Munro is a Scottish mountain of more than 3,000ft (914m) – including Britain’s highest mountain – Ben Nevis.

Only three other people had previously been recorded completing the Winter Munro Round.

The first was Martin Moran in 1985, before Steve Perry completed it in 2006 and Kevin Woods in 2020.

Ms Wells’ bid was set around astronomical winter, which starts on the shortest day and ends with the spring equinox.
