The mountains in Scotland over 3,000 feet (914 metres) in height are called the Munros. Named after Hugh Munro, the first person to compile a list of them in 1891, there were were originally 283 Munros. The list has grown and shrunk over the years - in 1984 it was 277, in 1997 it grew to 284 and in September 2009 it returned to 283 after Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was re-measured and found to miss the magic height by 1 metre. The most recent revision of the list found Beinn a'Chlaidheimh in Fisherfield to be under the 3,000ft height, therefore bringing the current total to 282 Munros.

This page is dedicated to the 283 Munro peaks of the Scottish highlands and reports of my pursuits as I work my way through the list

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
— Robert Burns
