Goodbye Ceannaichean

Newsflash: The Munro Society has announced today that Sgurr nan Ceannaichean, which was Munro 284, has been stripped of its Munro status, having been re-measured as 913.4m high (read here). Sgurr nan Ceannaichean is a lovely little hill and I had a great time going up it, which shows how arbitrary all this height focus is, but then we all know that really (as does anyone who's ascended Cairnwell...).

As Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was my 81st Munro all my numbers since then are now out by one. One day I'll update the full history, but don't watch this space.

Catch you all later.

Can't someone just pile a 0.6m cairn on top and then we could all still call it a Munro? :-)

"Cheesecake" is the lazy name given to a totally different hill, (Bidean Coire Sheasgaich) so no goodbye I'm afraid!
