Munros and Munro Tops

A hill is classified as a Munro if it is a Scottish hill of at least 3000 feet in height (914.4m) regarded by the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC) as distinct and separate mountains, based on a list originally published by Sir H.T. Munro in the Scottish Mountaineering Club Journal in 1891 and subsequently revised by the SMC.

Subsidiary summits meeting the height criterion are classified as Munro Tops.

There are currently 282 Munros and 226 Munro Tops but as revisions to the list are still ongoing, mainly as a result of more accurate surveying this can change. For example Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was demoted from a Munro Top to a Corbett in 2009 after being surveyed at 913m and Beinn a'Chlaidheimh was demoted from a Munro to a Corbett in September 2012 after being resurveyed by the Munro Club and found to be 913.96m high so 44cm short.
