List of Marilyns in Scotland

The full list of the 1218 Marilyns in Scotland is divided geographically into four pages. Included in this are the list of the 221 Corbetts and the list of the 223 Grahams.

Marilyns are hills in the British Isles with relative height of at least 150 metres (492 ft) irrespective of absolute height. The list was compiled by Alan Dawson and published in The Relative Hills of Britain.[1]

Corbetts are Scottish mountains that are 2500–3000 ft (762.0–914.4 m) high with a relative height of 500 feet (152.4 m). The list was compiled in the 1920s by John Rooke Corbett, a Bristol-based climber and SMC member, and was published posthumously after it was passed to the SMC by his sister.[2] (A metric definition requiring 150 m of relative height is sometimes used; use of the broader metric definition does not result in any additional summits being included.)

Grahams are Scottish mountains that are 2000–2500 ft (609.6–762.0m) high with a relative height of 150 metres (492 ft). The list of hills fitting these criteria was first published by Alan Dawson in The Relative Hills of Britain under the provisional name Elsies (LCs, short for Lesser Corbetts).[1] They were later named Grahams after the late Fiona Torbet (née Graham) who had compiled a similar list around the same time.[3]
