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.
