The Munros are the mountains in Scotland which are over 3,000 feet high. There are 283 of these summits. Confusingly there are another 255 summits over 3,000 feet which are only regarded as ‘Tops’, a subsidiary category.
The Munros are located throughout the Scottish Highlands with a few on the Isle of Skye. They were first listed as a Munro Table in 1891 by Sir Hugh Munro, a member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club.
