A Munro is a mountain in Scotland at a height over 3000ft, they are named after the first person that catalogued them all, Sir Hugh Munro. In his original tables there were 283 mountains that qualified, over the years improvements in mapping and topography technology means that the total still stands at 283, but peaks have been added as well as removed over the years.
The latest revision of the Munro tables occured in 2009, where Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was found to be slightly too low to qualify as a Munro. The full Munro list now stands at 283 Munros.
Munro Central is your one-stop website to all things Munro orientated. On this site you will find description and (often multiple) routes up all 283 Munros. Our aim is to provide all the information you need to plan for a successful expedition in Scotland, be it a one-off day up Ben Nevis, or a week-long expedition in the Cairngorms. Our website is relevant to someone looking to bag for their first Munro, and equally relevant to someone looking for the best way up that last elusive Munro!
