Categories : Munros (22)

Munros are defined as Scottish mountains over 3,000 feet (914.4 m)

The country is traditionally divided into three areas, the Southern Uplands, Central lowlands or Midland Valley and the Highlands with a large percentage lieing above 800ft and hills and mountains are an ever present aspect of the landscape.  A Munro top is a summit over 3000 ft.

Munros were first listed by Sir Hugh Munro (1856 - 1919) in his 'Munros Tables', published in the Journal of the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC) in 1891. His list caused quite a stir at the time, as it had previously been thought that there were only around 30 mountains of that height, Sir Hugh divided the summits into 283 separate  mountains (now known as the Munros), whilst 255 further summits over 3000 feet were considered to be only subsidiary 'Tops'.

Some  walkers climb Munros with an eye to climbing every single one, a practice known as Munro bagging,Having climbed all of them, a walker is entitled to be called a Munroist. Munro-bagging is a form of Peak bagging"

  well-known Munros include

Ben Nevis Ben Nevis in the Lochaber area is the highest peak in the British Isles  with an altitude of 1,344 metres (4,409 ft).
