John Tullis' Big Munros Question

A chap at Edinburgh University called John Tullis asked himself a question recently: which city is better for Munrobagging? Glasgow or Edinburgh?

Having lived in both, the answer is pretty obvious. Glasgow of course! But John's data visualisations give an answer that is both definitive and engaging - quite a feat. I encourage you to click on the link and watch his animations. I personally could watch for hours the wee cars driving around the Highlands.

And he's giving a talk on it on Thursday 12 March 2020 in Edinburgh, a must for any hillwalking geeks.



Because John will reveal one further piece of information his analysis has uncovered. Based on minimum total driving time, what is the best location to live to bag all the Munros? Is it Fort William? Dalwhinnie? Find out at his talk! I intend to be there - perhaps I will see you?

Obviously the talk never happened, and was postponed until after lockdown. Looking forward to it when it is rescheduled.
