The 10 best multi-Munro bagging days

Long routes to bag several mountain summits over 3,000feet high

Feeling fit and wanting to stretch yourself ? A great way would be to fit in several Munros is one outing over a long day. Here's my pick of these hiking days, all with at least 6 Munros packed into a varied route.

So you've reached the point in your Munro bagging career where you've bagged several summits and are addicted !

But there's still a long way to go to reach that 282 tally of all the Munro summits. What about hiking some long summer days to get the number outstanding down ?

Well, here's a list of the top 10 days to get some big numbers in the bag. Some are easier than expected whereas others will really push you to your limits.



Ben Lawers is the 10th highest mountain in the UK and the highest in the Southern Highlands. The mountain is at the centre of a chain of 7 Munros which fit people can walk in one day.

The 9 Munros above Glenshee can be linked to form a long high-level circuit. With generally grass covered slopes, this is one of the easier ways to go multi-Munro-bagging !

The South Glen Shiel Ridge is a range of 7 Munro peaks stretching for 13km in a continuous chain. Tag on The Saddle and Sgurr na Sgine for some easy scrambling and more exhilarating views.

The Mamores is one of the finest mountain ranges in Scotland, with 10 Munros compacted into 34km. The peaks are all linked in one long chain with three deviations for outlying summits.

This is a very remote area and not for beginner Munro-baggers ! All 12 Munros encircling Loch Mullarodch can be taken in on one long and varied route, perhaps back-packed over 2 days.

A chain of 9 Munros above Loch Fannich in the far north-west. It takes some effort to get onto the main ridge, but once up, progress is straightforward following paths on grass.

Ben More and Stob Binnein are two of the highest mountains in the Southern Highlands. Combined with 5 neighbouring Munros to the west make for a long and spectacular route.

The famed Five Sisters of Kintail rise dramatically from the northern side of Glen Shiel. Combined with their easterly neighbouring Munros, up to 9 Munros can be bagged in one outing.

South-east of Ullapool, the vast wildernesses of Inverlael, Freevater and StrathVaich Forests lie waiting to be explored. There are 6 entertaining Munros here and some Corbetts too !

The Skye Cuillin are technically much harder than anything else in Scotland. On a clear and dry day, competent and fit scramblers could summit the 8 Munros on the Southern Cuillin, or even extend the day to do the entire ridge !
