Walks to the Scottish HuMPs

This page shows all my Scottish HuMPs walks. The list is sorted in date order, with the most recent walk at the top of the page. You can get a rough idea of how easy or difficult the walk is likely to be from the distance and height gain numbers on the walk. Click on the walk name to get more information for that walk, including a dynamic OS map and a downloadable GPX file for your GPS device.

British and Irish Hills of any height with a drop of at least 100 metres or more on all sides. The name HuMP stands for Hundred Metre Prominence. As all Marilyns qualify as HuMPs, the classification code HuMP is only used for non-Marilyns. The geographical area was extended to the Channel Islands in November 2011.

A Twin HuMP is defined as a summit of equal height to another HuMP where the drop between the two summits is at least 30m but less than 100m.
