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.
