Munros

The Munros are the mountains of over 3,000 feet in Scotland, those distinct enough to be considered a mountain.

These mountains are the premier challenge for the Highland walker, and to bag a munro is a glad achievement: to bag them all is the achievement of a lifetime, and one that several noted climbers have achieved.

Munro Maps are available, with tick-lists to tick each mountain off as it is climbed..

Mountains in the British Isles furth of Scotland are known as the “furth munros”, a distinction given by the Scottish Mountaineering Society to those 34 mountains which would have been enrolled as Munros, had they had the good fortune to be in Scotland.
