5. Climb at least one of the Munros.
Unbelievable day. @magnusw91 , Ginny and I ended up doing 4 munros, hardest of which being Ben Macdui, and just under 40km walking. 10 hours on the hills, all kinds of weather, 6am leave this morning and not long home! Safe to say I am absolutely shattered! (Not as much as the dog is😝!!) #Cairngorms #BenMacdui #Munros

7. Summit Ben Nevis.
8. Spit on the Heart of Midlothian.
spitting on the #heartofmidlothian. spitting on the heart of midlothian is said to be #goodluck. this is because A #tolbooth (prison) stood on the site, where executions used to take place. the heart marks its doorway: the point of public execution. although it now said to be done for good luck, it was originally done as a sign of disdain for the former prison. the spot lay directly outside the prison entrance, so the custom may have been begun by debtors on their release. #edinburgh A photo posted by nathan marshall (@nmarshall1370) on
