The Hike Societyโ€™s introduction to Munro Bagging.
Munro bagging is the activity of climbing and reaching the summit of all the mountains in Scotland that have a height of over 3,000 feet (914.4 meters) and are listed in the official Scottish Mountaineering Club's (SMC) list of Munros.

These mountains are named after Sir Hugh Munro, who first listed them in 1891. Sir Hugh himself didnโ€™t manage to bag all of the Munros on his list, as he sadly died during the flu epidemic at the end of WW1, with only 3 left to complete. Munro bagging has become increasingly popular, since Rev A E Robertson became the first โ€˜completerโ€™ (the title given to individuals who bag them all) in 1901.

Completing Munro Bagging by summiting all 282 Munros is seen as a significant achievement and is considered a rite of passage for many hillwalkers and climbers in Scotland.
Bagging all the Munros requires a significant amount of time, effort, and expertise, as many of these mountains are located in remote and challenging areas with unpredictable weather and rugged terrain. However, the stunning views and the sense of accomplishment that come with completing the challenge makes it a worthwhile endeavour for many outdoor enthusiasts.

Below are some of the popular Munros you can try to โ€˜bagโ€™:

- Ben Lomond is often one of the summits hikers try to โ€˜bagโ€™ first due to the gradual, well- maintained path to the top. The trail can be busy, but the magnificent views over Loch Lomond at the summit makes it very valuable.

Time: 5 hours
Height: 974m

- Ben Lawers is the highest mountain in the Southern Highlands and offers breath-taking views over Loch Tay at the top. Regarded as an easier Munro route, it also takes you via another Munro, Beinn Ghlas (1,103M).

Time: 4-6 hours
Height: 1,214m

- Ben Macdui is Britainโ€™s second highest peak and sits at the centre of the Mar Lodge Estate. Itโ€™s a lengthy remote hike through the wilderness, totalling at 18 miles to get to the top.

Time: 9-10 hours
Height: 1,309m

- Buachaille Etive Mรณr is a short drive from Glasgow and is home to two Munros: Stob Dearg and Stob na Broige. It also happens to be one of the most recognisable mountains in Scotland with more than 30,000 people attempting to climb it every year.

Time: 7โ€“9 hours
Height: Stob Dearg 1,021m; Stob na Broige 956m
It is vitally important that youโ€™re well prepared and equipped when attempting to tackle any Munro walks. All of the hikes have substantial ascents and descents over varied and challenging terrain. Be fully prepared for a day in a tough mountain environment and always check the mountain forecast as it can change very quickly. All mountain climbs require proper awareness, equipment and planning.
