On this page you'll find a list of Munros and Corbett bagging routes in the Islands of Scotland. The routes are grouped into mountain ranges, with the most southerly at the start of the page and the most northerly at the bottom of the page.

To help you find routes, on a separate page, you can filter all these routes in the Islands by distance, ascent, difficulty of terrain, quality of scenery and even by Munro and Corbett count.


A circuit above Glenrosa in Arran and including Cir Mor and Goatfell where some scrambling is involved while taking in superb views. To the west of these fine peaks is Beinn Bharrain, a quieter peak with long ridges.

Lots of scree and some tricky navigating in mist. A must-do hill race takes place every year
(Coming soon)

Ben More is a the highest mountain on Mull with a choice of some ridge walking and easy scramble, or a delightful and easy direct 'tourist route' up ! To the south-east and above Craignuire, Dun da Ghaoithe is easily accessed using tracks. Excellent views.

A small island boasts history, geology and green credentials. These two peaks, both craggy with huge drops, are well worth visiting.

More compact than the Skye Cuillin, effort is needed to get to the island and scrambling on the ridges
(Coming soon)

Excellent views combine with fine ridge and scree running to give a superb afternoon out.
(Coming soon)

Tussocky ground leads to grassy ground higher up and rocky ridges with a wall to follow and superb views.

Reckoned to be one of the most beautiful hills in Scotland, no difficulties getting to the summit

Lots of scree and superb views. When the weather sulks on the Black Cuillin, the Red Cuillin often stays cloud-free !

To bag the majority of the Munros of the Black Cuillin, sustained scrambling requiring a good head for heights and some ropework will be required. There are some less challenging peaks with Bruach na Frithe reckoned to be the easiest.

Running along a spine of cliffs and hills, this group of routes ends at the spectacularly weird Quiraing.
(Coming soon)

The highest peak in the Outer Hebrides has relatively straightforward access and stunning views
