GPS Waypoints of all UK Ordnance Survey Trig. Points


Munros 

Scottish Munro Mountains - The Munros are the highest of Scotland's mountains, 282 mountain tops named after the man who first catalogued them, Sir Hugh Munro.
Revised down from 284: Beinn a'Chlaidheimh and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean have been surveyed as less than 3000ft and have been reclassified as Corbetts.


Marilyns 

Hills & Mountains of any height with a drop of at least 150 metres on all sides.
The geographical area includes the Isle of Man and the islands of St Kilda. (N.B. twin peak marilyns are not included here)


Corbetts 

Corbetts - Scottish hills between 2500 and 2999 feet high with a drop of at least 500 feet (152.4m) on all sides. (making them a sub-set of the Marilyns too)


Trail 100 

Trail's Top 100 Hills; a list of 100 hills published in Trail Magazine in 2007 which has become popularised by becoming the objective of the WaterAid Trail 100 charity challenge.


HuMPs 

Hills of any height with a drop of at least 100 metres or more on all sides. The name HuMP stands for Hundred Metre Prominence. (All Marilyns are HuMPs) The original source for the HuMPs list was Dr Eric Yeaman's "Handbook of the Scottish Hills", published by Wafaida in 1989. Clem Clements applied Yeaman's original criteria to England and Wales, and christened the results "Yeomans".


Grahams 

Graham Mountains: - A Graham is a hill from 610 metres to 761 metres high inclusive (2000-2499 feet), with a drop of at least 150 metres all round. Originally, Scottish hills in this height range were referred to as Elsies (short for Lesser Corbetts).


Donalds 

Hills in the Scottish Lowlands at least 2000 feet high. 'Tops' are all elevations with a drop of at least 100 feet (30.48m) on all sides and elevations of sufficient topographical merit with a drop of between 50 and 100 feet. Certain of these are designated 'Hills' according to a complex formula based on both distance and drop.


Munro Tops 

Scottish 'Tops': - Munro Tops are subsidiary summits to Munros which although meeting the height criterion for a Munro are not deemed to be separate to be distinct Munros.


P30 TUMPs 

TUMPs or P30s are hills of any height with a drop of at least 30 metres or more on all sides. The name TUMP stands for Thirty & Upward Metres Prominence.


Historic County tops

The highest point within (or sometimes on) the boundary of each county. Based on the traditional list of counties from which people usually take their local cultural identity. Note that these were never abolished, they just ceased to have administrative function.


Yeamans

The hills listed by Dr Eric Yeaman in his Handbook of the Scottish Hills (Wafaida, 1989). There were 2441 hills in the original book, the first ever publication to prioritise relative over absolute height in its selection:
"For the purposes of this Handbook, a hill is defined as an eminence which has an ascent of 100m all round, or, failing that, is at least 5km (walking distance) from any higher point".

Dr Yeaman later circulated an update sheet with copies of his book, in which he identified 66 additional hills, 11 deletions and 6 substitutions, one of which was subsequently reversed, giving a final total of 2495 hills. Yeamans were effectively the precursor of HuMPs, often referred to as 'New Yeamans' in the early stages, but 351 non-HUMPS qualify by virtue of the 5km distance rule.


Marilyn Munros

The most significant Munros which also have Marilyn status of 150m seperation


Donald Tops

Current County and Unitary Authority tops

Administrative County tops
