Munro bagging


History of Munro Bagging

Perhaps the birth of modern ‘peak bagging’ (as opposed to technical mountaineering) was brought about in Scotland, by one Sir Hugh Thomas Munro. A member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club, Sir Munro published a painstakingly researched list of all the Scottish mountains over 3000ft. Two years later in 1891, the Ordnance Survey published updated maps of Scotland, and this was the first of many to dispute the exact number of ‘Munros’, as the mountains became known. Despite his efforts, Sir Munro was not the first to climb all 284 munros; that honour (arguably) went to Ronald Burn, who completed them in 1923.

Since then, over 4000 people have bagged all the Munros. The fastest ‘completion’ was done in 48 days and 12 hours, and one munro bagger has even bagged all the munros 13 times over!
