Hill walking in Scotland and places to stay!

Munro bagging and walking in Scotland.

Munro walking in Scotland mountain climbing

Mountains in Scotland that are over 3,000ft are called munros (named after Sir Hugh Munro, the first president of the Scottish Mountaineering Club who catalogued them) - there are 284 peaks to climb if you want to scale them all! These are the highest Scottish mountains and munro-bagging is a popular pursuit amongst mountain climbers and hill walkers. All but one munro can be 'bagged' without any mountaineering equipment so many people on a walking holiday in Scotland get a few munros ticked off their list during their stay! Keen and experienced hill walkers try to complete the ultimate feat of walking up every munro in Scotland and getting their name in the hall of fame! Corbetts are hills between 2,500 and 3,000ft and Grahams are Scottish hills between 2,000 and 2,500ft - these are obviously less arduous walks but still offer some challenging walking in the Scottish hills.
