If you have not seen this from BBC Scotland of Donny Campbell running all the Munros in 35 days this is the link. I'm not quite sure where he gets the energy. Just awesome!!!

Or was 35 days the previous record? I would need to check.

No totally wrong. Previous record was 39 days which Donny reduced to 31 days & 23 hours!

I think 35 days was Campbell's original target. He rather got carried away with himself towards the end of his trip!

I knew 35 was mentioned somewhere. That ascent of the final Munro, Ben Hope was amazing how he put on that final spurt despite a marathon day on the hills.

The other telling moment was on about day 17 when he really had to dig deep. Impressive willpower!
