The Munros

There are 283 Munros in Scotland, named after Sir Hugh Munro who had the idea to climb all of the 3000 ft mountains in Scotland. The latest list of Munros, peaks of 3000ft plus, totals 283 with a further 227 tops. These figures do change, as mountains are re-surveyed and heights are more accurately measured.

What is clear is that people enjoy lists and although there will continue to be arguments about whether or not a particular mountain is a Munro, there is no doubt that if you "bag" just one, or complete all 283 you wuill be enriched by the experience.

We have listed the Munros according to the Scottish Mountaineering Club's geographical areas. Within each area the Munros are listed alphabetically, with the individual listings showing the Munro name, altitude in feet and metres and height rank along with the Ordnance Survey and Harvey maps featuring the mountain.
