A baby boy from Fife is thought to have become the youngest Munro-bagger at just 10-weeks-old.
Innis Henderson was able to tick off his first two Munros after being carried up to the summits of Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas, in Perthsire, in the arms of his adventure-mad parents Chloe, 28 and Lee, 32.
Mum, Chloe said it had not crossed her mind that he could be the youngest when they set out for a weekend walk, just weeks after her son was born.
The mountains, overlooking Loch Tay, are 1214 metres and 1103 metres respectively, with the latter accessible by summiting the former.
Chloe said: “I was determined to get into the hills and walking as soon as I could after what was a difficult birth and with Innis being such a content baby we took the first opportunity we could.
“So many people had told me that I’d not be able to go walking once I’d given birth so I was determined to prove them wrong.
“Innis arrived by emergency caesarean but I healed very quickly and and felt fit enough so we ventured out taking turns to carry Innis in the baby carrier and with our dog Millie in tow.”
However, Chloe admits making the ascent took a little longer than it would have done previously.
“Innis still needs his feed every our so we’d just stop, play with him on the grass, change him and then it was back on our way.
“It took a wee while longer but it was just great to do it as a family and goes to prove we don’t have to shut the door on doing things you love just because we have a baby.”
Chloe said she has been surprised by all the fuss after photographs of Innis at the summit posted on social media attracted huge attention.
“We just thought they were cute photos but the interest has just blown up out of nowhere and people are now saying he’s the youngest to bag a Munro.”
Scotland’s 282 Munros are peaks of 3000ft or more named after Sir Hugh Munro who scaled and mapped them all back in 1891.
Innis will be able to tick another off his list this weekend as the family plan to be back out in the countryside.
“We can only get out on Sundays as a family so we are going to Beinn Narnain and my even dad’s coming along too to see what all the fuss is about,” said Chloe.
“We plan to revisit the Munros we’ve carried Innis up when he’s a bit older and who knows, he might just bag them all at some point if he wants to.”
