Pete Milne (616)

A geographically varied year, as I climbed the Cornwall and Shetland Marilyns (barring the elusive Noss Head) within a six-week period. The Cornwall hills were done on a week's family holiday at the start of the summer, where my wife, daughter and mother seemed amazed that I wanted to 'climb' Hensbarrow Beacon, although the trip to the nearby Eden Centre was worth the drive. A far better wilderness experience was had on the Shetland week with fellow RHBers, where I climbed my 600th on Ronas Hill (thanks to Brent, Alan, Alison, Ali, Eric, Phil and Kathy for attending). The highlight of the trip was probably the evening ascent of The Sneug on Foula, a wonderfully remote island. Other great days included following in Hugh Barron's footsteps going round Craiglee, Craignaw, Mullwharchar and Merrick on the hot Saturday of the annual dinner weekend in Galloway, as well as a fine winter walk with the family over Carn Daimh (21A).
