The best known is the Wainwrights, which was almost certainly not conceived as a list. This enables them to locate the position of the col as accurately as possible. GPS data submitted to the GPS database administrator or logged on Hill Bagging are recorded in an online GPS database that complements the Change Control Database. In October 2012 G&J Surveys purchased a Leica Viva GS15 Professional GPS receiver to replace the Leica 530. Garmin and Magellan units use a transformation known as a Molodensky transformation (the equations and required parameters can be found in "Department of Defense World Geodetic System 1984 - Its Definition and Relationship with Local Geodetic Systems, NIMA TR8350.2, 3rd Edition, Amendment 1, 3 Jan 2000"). This has happened a … For hills where no ten-figure grid reference has been recorded, the grid reference is for the SW corner of the 100m square in which the summit is thought to reside and consequently the GPS will not take you to the summit itself. There are 227 of them in addition to the 282 Munros We place no restrictions on use of the data by third parties and encourage authors of other websites and applications to do so. ), but the nature of the terrain (see below) is critical. For most of their surveys the overall uncertainty in summit height is ±0.1m and of col height ±0.15m (3 s.d. With boulder fields, rare wildlife and stunning views from their summits, these 11 Munros in Scotland have all been recommended by members of our community as 'easier Munros' that are great walks in their own right - plus they'll give you invaluable experience for tougher climbs. Subsequently the Nuttalls obtained a revised figure of 2001ft at SD919764 from the OS (from a 1920 levelling survey) which they indicated will appear on the next update of the 1:25000 Explorer. In October 2014 Alan Holmes published on the rhb group the most comprehensive island list to date, which he named The Significant Islands of Britain. For Wainwright Outlying Fells we have extended the areas defined in the Pictorial Guides by continuing the Windermere boundary southwards along the River Leven to Greenodd, and from Bassenthwaite Lake north-west along the River Derwent. Many hills have had their drop measured by both optical levelling and differential GPS. The choice of location is of some importance because if the height were below 350.6m (100m above the LIDAR height of the col) the hill would cease to qualify as a Hump. The guide does explicitly say there are 14 munros on the ridge - it something you'd expect them to get right. There are 34 furths; 15 in Wales, 13 in Ireland and six in England. This is given by the co-ordinates of the south-west corner of the square (the same rule applies however many digits you quote). Spot heights often differ between scales. In order to display this position as a British National Grid reference the GPS unit must perform a transformation. There is, therefore, much greater use of contour interpolation and consequently lower accuracy. The 1:25000 map is misleading, as the summit is within the 440m contour ring 160m to the east of the easterly 442m spot. We are grateful to Darren Parker who first kindled our interest in uploading ten-figure grid references from the database to a GPS instrument, and to Bernie Hughes for first creating POI files from the database. We have provided a small csv, Open the csv file in GPSU File Converter and save this as a text file. The Corbetts are the equivalent mountains with altitudes between 2500ft and 3000ft and The Grahams between 2000ft and 2500ft. GPS waypoints can be downloaded to a computer using free or commercial software and the WGS84 latitude and longitude extracted. In the UK they were never abolished, they just ceased to have administrative function. 1 Contents Acknowledgements 2 Preface 5 Executive Summary 6 Chapter one: Introduction 14 Chapter two: The principles of an effective child protection system 23 Chapter three: A system that values professional expertise 39 Chapter four: Clarifying accountabilities and improving learning 52 Chapter five: Sharing responsibility for the provision of early help 69 The database is provided in two principal formats: an Access database, from which Excel and csv versions are derived, and an online database accessible at Hill Bagging. Anyone wishing to support the fund can do so via the PayPal link or by contacting one of the editors. Current County and Unitary Authority tops — list of Counties, Metropolitan Districts and Unitary Authorities that came into existence in the 1990s, and are still changing. Originally called Yeamans of England & Wales or Yeomans, they were renamed The Clems after Clements' death. Alternatively, you could do them all as part of a hillrace taking in another 7 Munros ! G&J Surveys does this with level and staff and in the case of cols takes measurements on a grid of flags laid out over the col area in order to determine its topography. The criterion for inclusion was "an eminence which has an ascent of 100m all round, or, failing that, is at least 5km (walking distance) from any higher point on neighbouring hills". Marilyns have a drop (minimum descent before ascending to higher ground; also known as relative height or prominence) of at least 150m. Black Mountain is assigned to Wales alone in the Nuttalls' books, as are 2254 Black Mountain South Top and 2262 Pen-y-Garn Fawr which are similarly assigned to Section 32A. If you're starting off hillwalking or thinking about Munro-bagging, then have a look at our page with the easiest Munro walks. Remember though it's never 'easy' to bag a Munro. In terms of administrative tier, these are at the same level as Metropolitan Districts. In Ireland, MountainViews has built on data from other sources to create the Arderins for hills over 500m high and the Carns for hills in the 400–500m range. The 35-year-old, from Inverness, completed the round in … The Dodds originally excluded the Isle of Man and could be regarded as a downward extension of the Simms. We have followed the same policy with the Birketts. The latest summit photographs and satellite imagery (2019) suggest the artificial summit is still some years away from gaining eligibility. Following a survey which found Buidhe Bheinn to be 29cm higher, the SMC demoted Sgurr a' Bhac Chaolais on 3 November 2012. The team has access to a Leica GS15 survey-grade GPS capable of measuring height to 5cm, a Leica NA730 automatic x30 telescopic level, two Leica Runner automatic x20 telescopic levels, two 1m surveyor's staffs extendable to 5m, four tripods and a Leica Disto A8 for measuring distance and angles. Some lists are not exact subsets due to discrepancies between lists. Woodland Fell is the name of the moor of which Yew Bank and Wool Knott are high points (page 102). A blank field denotes that the hill has not been surveyed. 3 Except Castle Crag. Deleted Munro Tops (xMT). With the exception of minor Tumps, most moves of more than 400m will trigger a replacement, as will lesser moves if the summit has a clearly separate identity, or if the former summit is retained as a member of a different list (e.g. The heights of Foinaven and Beinn Dearg were measured by a survey company, CMCR, for The Munro Society. Classification (hill list) and Area information are in separate tables, with "link" tables to identify the Classes and Areas to which a hill belongs. We are grateful to the following walkers for contributing 10-figure GPS readings to the database: Adrian Snowdon, Alan & Kathy Duval, Alan Moore, Alasdair Alexander, Alex Barbour, Andrew Brown, Andrew Round, Andy Lindley, Andy Tomkins, Andrew West, Anthony Duffield, Anton Ciritis, Bengt Karlsson, Bernie Hughes, Bert Barnett, Bill Morden, Brian Diggle, Brian Matthews, Carolyn Hastings, Charlie Leventon, Charlie Scrimgeour, Chris Bienkowski, Chris Clissold, Chris Derrick, Chris Peart, Chris Watson, Chris Walker, Clive Richardson, Colin MacKenzie, Conrad Izatt, Craig Mungin, Dale Wilson, Darren Groutage, Dave Marshall, Dave McGimpsey, David Baird, David Brown, David Butterfield, David Claymore, David Gradwell, David Purchase, David Williams, David White, Del Wilson, Dennis Foster, Derek Blackburn, Derek Norry, Derek Snaith, Des Taylor, Douglas Law, Douglas Robertson, Gareth Solomon, Gerry Bowes, Grant Bain, Henry Marston, Ian Baines, Ian Henderson, Ian Walter, Iain Macaulay, Iain Rudkin, Idwal Jones, Jim Coombes, John Edwards, John Smith, John Stoneham, Jonathan Glew, Jon Metcalfe, Jonathan Russell, Judy Catterall, Justin Dunn, Ken Wood, Laurence Rudkin, Lewis Donald, Lindsay Boyd, Lindsay Shaw, Lionel Bidwell, Liz Nicholas, Lyndon Day, Malcolm Ratcliffe, Mark Smith, Mark Trengove, Martin Richardson, Martin Roberts, Michael Earnshaw, Michael Elcock, Mick Moore, Mike Mason, Mike Scott, Neil McVicar, Nigel Thackrah, Noel Williams, Paul Cawley, Paul Heaton, Paul Kingston, Paul Miller, Paul Ward, Paul Woodcock, Pete Fairhurst, Pete & Barbara Nelson, Peter Cottam, Peter & Liz Hastie, Peter Mitchell, Phil Catterall, Phil Sidwell, Richard Cooper, Richard Tibbetts, Richard Mclellan, Richard Webb, Rick Salter, Robert Davies, Robert Kerr, Robert Poole, Rob Woodall, Roger Hewitt, Ron Bell, Ronnie Bowron, Ross Drummond, Roy Davidson, Sandra Morrison, Simon Irons, Simon Winton, Stephen Dawson, Stephen Walker, Steve Smith, Steve Stobie, Stuart Joynson, Stuart Lawson, Ted Richards, Toby Thurston, Tom Levell, Tony Hartry, Tony Jenkins, Tony Watson and Tuco Ramirez. The lists of Elmslie, Simpson and Moss have been republished online by Moss. Version 10, released in September 2018, extended coverage to the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, and Ireland. We identify deletions only for SMC lists, Grahams and Nuttalls. The status is shown as, A consultation period during which other editors will check the data and agree the change or make amendments. Earlier maps, including the half-inch maps, the 1:63360 District Maps, and the 19th century 6-inch maps, use the low water mark of the spring tide on 8 April 1837 at Poolbeg Lighthouse, Dublin. If a summit is covered with thick tussock grass or heather, it can be difficult to establish the summit location even using automatic level and staff. In Ireland, MountainViews has acquired a Trimble GeoXH 6000 receiver. Other publications may give different data. Another reason for published grid references not matching ours is that the true summit may not be identified on the map; there are many examples in the database where a spot height or trig pillar is not at the highest point. Anyone who has completed the Donalds and Donald Tops will have visited all the New Donalds. The UK’s biggest hill is actually one of the most popular Munros for beginners, so join the 150,000 people who attempt to climb to the summit each year. The same is true of GPS Utility. EH5 3AN. New versions of the downloadable database are issued at a frequency of two or three per year. It means 'hill' in Gaelic, that's why – but Scottish mountain naming doesn't stop there. Right-click on the fourth column header and from the drop-down list select 'Comment'. So much so that there was even a BBC series called the Munro Show presented, in a light-hearted manner, by Muriel Gray in the early 1990s. Knight's Peak was eventually reclassified from Corbett Top to Murdo in 2010, but doubts remained. 5 Islands having at least 30m drop or 30 hectares area excluding sea stacks; see SIBs For Munro Tops we only give the summit name, as the range name will appear in the Parent (SMC) field. User Compare: List hills climbed by one user but not by another, or hills climbed by both, or hills climbed by neither. This change brings the The following abbreviations are used when referring to sources: A few summits in the vicinity of trig pillars were levelled to the flush bracket by Abney Level; the height difference from the figure in the OS Legacy Database was used to estimate the summit height. This grid does not appear on the States of Jersey Official Leisure Map. Peter Walker 20 Apr 2011 In reply to Gob_Stopper: They are important (one is the start of the south-north traverse, the other a particularly tricksome section of the ridge), but they aren't in Munro's Tables because they're below 3000ft. The extracts from the MoD maps published in the Sunflower guides, and some modern maps such as the 1:12500 International Travel Map of Guernsey and the smaller islands, use the older coordinate system so please bear this in mind when using the data. These began to be abolished in the 1990s. Munro-bagging/Mountain climbing A much-loved past time in Scotland, Munro bagging - trying to climb the 282 Scottish peaks that qualify as Munros - has grown in popularity in recent years. Only a few of these are entered in the DoBIH, but all are recorded in the GPS database from which the entries in the DoBIH are derived. For example, the trig point of Great Shunner Fell is located at SD 84862 97290 so the correct 6-figure grid reference is SD848972. A Munro is a Scottish mountain over 3,000 feet high and ‘bagging’ them – climbing to the top – is a national sport. For hills not offered by MountainViews no map will be shown. Five deletions plus a relocation. Summary of changes. The ten-figure grid references in the database will usually take the user to within 5m of the target feature. The Cuillin Munros are acknowledged as the hardest to attain and linking them is even tougher, with many narrow ridges to scramble and concentration required on every step. //-->John Barnard. Hills duplicated in more than one section of the RHB/TACit Tables, or which could be put in more than one section, have been treated as follows: Hills on the England-Scotland border is your resource for Munro, Corbett & Graham information. confirm that it will amend the official list of Munros (Munro's Tables®), which it maintains, to This presents a problem with the Excel and csv versions of the database, unless one adopts the clumsy solution of giving each list a separate Area field. for Irish hills. Alternatively, it can be created in GPS Utility by a similar method to that described below, i.e. Topographically this is not logical, but the Nuttalls clearly did so because Moel y Cerrig Duon is conveniently included in the same walk as the hills west of the road summit. Cruachan Dearg, Meall nan Damh, Sidhean a' Choin Bhain (formerly twin Grahams), Cnoc Coir a' Phuill, Sgurr a' Bhac Chaolais, Middleton Hill, An Stuc, Carn Liath, Saugh Hill, and for a few years Stob Coire a' Chairn, were formerly twin Marilyns. For more information see the survey report for the particular hill. Includes the deleted Munros, Beinn an Lochain, Sgurr nan Ceannaichean and Beinn a' Chlaidheimh. When starting a walk, the appropriate Hill Number will be visible in MapView (when set to the appropriate scale) on the eTrex and the user will be able to identify the correct hill to select in GOTO when approaching the summit area. The file may then be copied to the GPX subfolder in the Garmin directory of the GPS. As a rough guide, for hills whose height and drop have not been accurately surveyed you should climb those within 3m of the qualifying height and 6m of drop; for more detailed guidance see section 4 of Accuracy of heights from OS maps. There is currently one Twin Tump. The Scottish Islands by Hamish Haswell-Smith includes the larger islands (minimum area 40ha) and has been used by some walkers to provide bagging objectives. Hill Bagging does not return the fields with absolute grid reference, latitude/longitude (except by reading off the map) or revision date, but gives additional fields for Catchment and Watershed, and links to photographs on the hill summits website. Some newer GPS instruments, e.g. Deleted Nuttalls (xN). Where a hill has existing data, the new measurement may replace the original (usually when a survey or LIDAR analysis has revealed the new location to be higher), otherwise the updated grid reference will be the average of all valid measurements. Optical levels enable accurate measurements of drop by differential levelling, and this has enabled us to determine the status of hills on the borderline of inclusion in the Nuttalls' and Dewey's lists. All classification changes and signficant relocations are announced on Hill Bagging when they enter the database. The accuracy of the imagery heighting using this method is quoted as ±0.5m for the Z (height) value. For information visit the Topographic Prominence and Europeaklist websites and their associated discussion groups. Surveys by the survey team (G&J Surveys) are carried out to professional standards and, subject to validation, data is accepted by Ordnance Survey as it is collected to OS protocols. If a grid reference has been read from the screen of a GPS instrument, then entering the grid reference into another GPS instrument using its own input screen will result in a point in the correct location (even though the grid reference may be incorrect). Twin tops are listed for some County Tops. The main route up Ben Nevis is the ‘Mountain Path’ – also known as the ‘the Ben Nevis tourist route’ – which makes it sound easy – it is not. You letter will be added to the SMC archive in the National Library of Scotland. In England and Wales, Nuttall and Wainwright areas have been assigned to many other hills falling within their boundaries, with Central Wales subdivided into three regions, but this process is incomplete for the Tumps. Our definition of replacement is more liberal than that adopted by the RHB update sheets (in "Hill changes") or the Appendix to the Humps e-book (which requires 30m of drop between the original summit and the replacement). Viewing hill data, and logging your ascents, are simplified by the provision of a number of forms and screens. Approved entries are fed into Hill Bagging at frequent intervals. A number of strategies are available to remove the errors introduced by the Molodensky transformation. We do not publish 10-figure grid references from maps because spot heights and trig points are frequently not at the summit. We welcome your input. The error in such measurements has been determined as ±8.5m (three standard deviations) in three independent studies, with the majority accurate to within ±5m of the summit feature. Deletions in other hill categories are sometimes recorded in the Comments field but the Change Registers are the main record. narrative that you might like included (such as supporters on the day). Formerly listed in RHB/TACit as belonging to both England and Wales. In Britain, the frequent local government reorganisations have caused lists based on administrative boundaries to become quickly out of date, and some walkers may prefer to ascend the highest points of the historic counties. We feel this is the best we can do without breaking the alignment with the Nuttalls' book. In the TACit booklets the "sub" categories include hills falling short on height, and there are additional categories for Subcorbetts and Subgrahams. The table below lists the Munros arranged by the regions as shown … Earlier submissions imported from the previous offline database can be identified by a negative Entry number. Also available is an Excel spreadsheet with many useful functions for converting from one datum to another. In 2016 we completed a statistical analysis of the accuracy of map heights, using survey data from Alan Dawson and G&J Surveys. Not everyone accepted the data as conclusive (see issue 69 of The Angry Corrie). Other listings followed from 1973 onwards, including coverage of Ireland in 1985. 1 For lists where the current or original definition is expressed in feet EDINBURGH The southern location is at SK889236 and the northern at SK851310. There are officially 283 you can climb. Includes Beinn Teallach which was promoted to Munro. Our guide to choosing, calibrating and operating an Abney Level may be helpful to walkers using these instruments. The Comments field should explain the presence of the hill in the database. Then in August 2006 Ken Stewart obtained a new height of 914.95 ± 0.5m from the OS, derived from high order photogrammetry and GPS. To complete the Munros will take many years, in many cases a lifetime of dedication” 282 mountains and 227 subsidiary tops. Note that it is the unique Hill Number that is transferred to the GPS in our test file and not the Hill Name. It's often said there is no such thing as winter hillwalking - it's real mountaineering. As described below, we use these to derive the 6-figure grid reference. After comparing the modern 1:25k map with the 1951 1:25k map, we have chosen a point at ST 1755 9075 at which the old path from the west has been diverted northwards to join the bridleway. There is a User table that allows multiple users to share the same copy of the database, each maintaining separate logs. Create the appropriate csv file for the data you wish to upload. Regions Inverness, Highlands and Islands The five tallest Munros in Scotland A MUNRO, as any hillwalker will tell you, is a Scottish mountain with a height of more than 3000ft. Summits and cols accurately measured by differential GPS instruments are recorded similarly, but a linked Change Request is raised to add the heights and col grid reference. Thus it incorporates a number of other hill lists, and naturally owes its existence to many contributors over several years. See Deleted Tops and Subs for details of these categories. The OSTN15 transformation replaced an earlier transformation called OSTN02 on 26 August 2016. Charles Inglis Clark Memorial Hut (C.I.C. Hill surveying using cutting edge techniques was pioneered by two DoBIH editors as a means of gaining accurate data on hills where height, drop or location are critical. We are particularly keen to receive 10 figure GPS measurements from readers. show that Sgurr nan Ceannaichean (913m) is now no longer a Munro. Murdos are Scottish hills over 3,000ft with a minimum drop of 30 metres on all sides - all Munros are Murdos, but not all Munro Tops are Murdos. Before truncating the entry in the 10-figure grid reference field to create the 6-figure GR, we make a small adjustment to correct for systematic error in the GPS readout (see below).
