Munro himself never completed his list, after several failed attempts on the Inaccessible Pinnacle on Skye. Given that it was then covered with loose rock and no decent climbing equipment was in existence (thus the name) this is pretty understandable, and many a hillwalker since has abandoned any Munro completion ambitions on first sight of it.
It wasn't until 1923 that a full round including the In Pinn was completed, and up until the seventies an average of only one completion per year was registered with the SMC's keeper of the list. However, some factor (maybe the invention of Goretex) triggered explosive Munro bagging and there are now several thousand Munroists.
A very good book on the history of Munro bagging is The Munro Phenomenon. by Andrew Dempster

Munros on Walk highlands Walkhighlands has route descriptions, photos, 1:25k maps and GPS tracks for many Munros
This page has the potential to become a really useful Munro reference (there are a few out there on the web, but each seems to lack something), if anyone wants to put in the work....
