Mountains Over 3000ft

The map of Mountains Over 3000ft points to mountains which are know as the Munro’s in Scotland. We have used 3000ft as a significact height demarcation to also identify mountains in other areas like Cumbria, Snowdonia and Ireland. 

Ben More in Argyll and Bute is one such mountain at 3852ft.  This magnificent mountain is the highest summit in its area and it stands mighty not only because of its supreme height but also its remoteness. It is one of the most d how-outstandingly sombre mountains I have ever climbed.  Ben More lies at the centre of a large corrie, surrounded by several peaks of its own.

Creag na Caillich in Stirlingshire is also an exceptional mountain. Out on its own, perched off the 'mainland' of hills found at Great and Little Martin; Creag na Caillich stands out not only because of its beauty but also because of its present solitude. The mountain is almost exactly 3000ft in height, and Creag na Caillich is backed up by its much larger brothers Little and Great Martin; they look as though they are there to provide Creag with backup. Immediate neighbour is the isolated and sinister hill of Cruach. It is a rather small mountain, and there is much to honour its solitude, yet it is one of my favourite mountains in Scotland.

Beinn Udlamain in Highland is a mountain in a large sandhill that rises from Kinloch Nethy, to 3314ft.  It has several high tops that are all a bit different but which occupy the same contour line. As a collective, they are known as Creag Udalmain - all of them include an enlarged shoulder or tump on the other side of the glen. The westerly view to Tavasdale is superb - only Gairloch and Skye better the aspect here.

Beinn nan Eachan in Stirling area is a Scottish mountain that is often climbed in combination with the neighbouring Stuc a' Chroin. The name translates as "Hill of the Vicarage". Beinn nan Eachan is usually climbed in combination with the neighbouring peak of Stuc a' Chroin. The mountain is usually climbed from the Glen Lochy side. The route starts at the end of the road that runs through Glen Lochy. It is a 3km climb onto the hillside that forms the northeastern corner of the Stuc a' Chroin massif. The route then climbs easily onto the ridge that runs between Stuc a' Chroin and Beinn nan Eachan. The route is usually completed in under 2 hours from the car park.

Meall Garbh in Perth and Kinross is probably one of the most overlooked Munros in the Cairngorms.  The mountain is overshadowed by its close neighbour of Sgùrr an Lochain, and many walkers are content to climb this mountain on the way to climbing Sgùrr an Lochain. Climbing Meall Garbh is a great way to get away from the crowds and explore some of the less well-known areas of this beautiful landscape. It is possible to ascend Meall Garbh via the west ridge, but most parties will take the more direct and easier route of ascending from the south. The summit of Meall Garbh is marked by a large cairn and offers amazing views of the surrounding hills. Many walkers will take in Sg ùrr an Lochain on the way down, making for a long day out. There are two starting points for this walk.
