Mountain adventurer Stephen Pyke has passed the 200 mark in his bid to complete the fastest ever round of the Munros - Scotland's 283 mountains over 3,000 ft.

The fell runner has climbed nearly 220 Munros and although he has encountered problems with missing camping equipment, he is on course to break the current record of 48 days and 12 hours while, Grough reports.

Mr Pyke is undertaking the challenge to raise money for conservation body the John Muir Trust.

As well as running apparel and Ordnance Survey maps, he has also needed to bring cycle gear with him as he has taken to two wheels to make up the distance between the various mountains.

The latest mountains he has completed are the Cuillin on Skye, including the notorious Inaccessible Pinnacle, which can only be ascended using a climbing rope.

His next set of mountains as of today (May 25th) is the north Glen Shiel Ridge, which includes the iconic Five Sisters of Kintail, three of which are Munros.

The Kintail area is famous for its many Munros, with the South Glen Shiel Ridge having seven, the highest of which is Aonach Air Crith at 3,349 ft.
