Margaret Squires (+111=878)

2010 was marked by two Corbett completions: Roger's on Beinn Lair in July and mine on Sgurr Innse in August. My nerve just about held for The Cobbler, and Roger just about managed to cart our tent in to Ben Aden. After Sgurr Innse we did Buidhe Bheinn on a belt-and-braces principle, but have not included it in the tally of Marilyns since we had done Sgurr a'Bhac Chaolais earlier. Why did we leave the hardest until last? Looking at our remaining Grahams, we discovered that we have done the same again, with some really long hauls in prospect.

The year's new Marilyns included visiting Harris and Mull, plus a trip across the border to Sedbergh. We stumbled across a couple of residents of the Upper Hall in the year's travels; Richard Wood and Lindsay Munro, both when returning from some insignificant wee hill.
