In Scotland a munro is defined as a mountain above 3000ft of which there are a total of 282. In 2018, disillusioned with a full-time career as a London-based chartered accountant, Emily Scott set out to reach the summit of every one of the Scottish Munros in one continuous, self-propelled, self-supported, and largely solo effort. The 120 day expedition saw Emily cover 2,200km on foot and 2,600km by bike with more that 195,000m of ascent.

Project 282 is the short film aiming to give a sense of Emily’s love of Scotland and what motivated her throughout the 120-day journey.

As part of her challenge, Emily was fundraising for three UK based emergency charities: the Mountain Bothy Association, Association of Air Ambulances and Scottish Mountain Rescue.

You can find out more about Emily’s expedition and the causes she was fundraising for here.

The tale of Mark Beaumont’s GBduro campaign, his first ever race

Dwarfed by 7326m-high Jomolhari, Sam Seward and Euan Wilson ride the Chelela trek trail. With climbing above 6000 metres prohibited in Bhutan, most of its highest peaks remain unconquered, and with such a small biomass of mountain bikers in the country, the trails that approach such peaks remain un-ridden too.
