Class Height
Munro 3000+ ft 914+ m
Corbetts 2500 – 3000 ft 762 – 914 m
Grahams 2000–2500 ft 610 – 762 m
Marilyn –2000 ft –610 m

This is a list of the 458 Marilyns in the Highlands of Scotland, south of the Great Glen.

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

Included in the list are all Corbetts and Grahams in this part of Scotland. 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 definition does not result in any additional summits being included.) Grahams are Scottish mountains that are 2000–2500 ft (609.6–762.0 m) high. 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.

In the tables below, rows have been coloured according to which lists the hills are on. (Note that only Munros that are additionally Marilyns are included in this list — see also a complete list of Munros.)

In the parent column, the prominence parent is used, as opposed to any other definition of 'parent'. The prominence parent of peak A can be found by dividing the island or region in question into territories, by tracing the runoff from the key col of every peak that is higher than peak A. The parent is the peak whose territory peak A resides in.

Of the 458 Marilyns on this list, 121 are Munros, 100 are Corbetts, 93 are Grahams and 144 are none of those.

Notes[edit]

^1 Càrn Liath and Creag an Dhail Bheag both have a height of 862 m and are separated by a drop of 34 m. They are collectively separated from Culardoch (their parent) by a 210 m drop making one of them a Marilyn. However, without more accurate heights, it is impossible to say which is the Marilyn, making them an example of a twin peak. By convention, Càrn Liath is considered to be the Marilyn and Corbett.[3]

^2 Beinn Bhreac and Leathad an Taobhain are another example of a twin peak, both having a height of 912 m. As they are separated by a drop of 155 m, both are Marilyns and Corbetts. Following the precedent established in Corbett Tops and Corbetteers, Beinn Bhreac is assumed to be higher when stating the relative height and parent.[3]

^3 Meall Chomraidh, Cruim Leacainn and The Bochel have all been discovered to be Marilyns since the publication of The Relative Hills of Britain and are therefore not listed in the book.[4]
