This is a list of Donald mountains in Scotland by height. Donalds were defined in 1935 by Scottish Mountaineering Club ("SMC") member Percy Donald, as Scottish lowlands mountains over 2,000 feet (609.6 m) in height, the general requirement to be called a "mountain" in the British Isles, and over 100 feet (30.5 m) in prominence, and which also had "sufficient topographical merit" that he outlined in a complex formula.[1][2]

This formula splits Donald's into Donald Hills and Donald Tops. The SMC define Donald Tops as: "elevations in the Scottish Lowlands of at least 2000ft (610m) in height with a drop of at least 50ft (15.2m) between each elevation and any higher elevation. Further, elevations separated from higher elevations by a drop of less than 100ft (30.5m) are required to have "sufficient topographical merit". In addition, the SMC define Donald Hills as being: "defined from Donald Tops, where a Hill is the highest Top with a separation of 17 units or less. A unit is either one-twelfth of a mile along a Top's connecting ridge or 50ft (30.5m) in elevation between the Top and its connecting bealach/col. The separation is the sum of these two measures."[3][2]

The SMC note that: "Percy Donald's original Tables are seen as a complete entity, unlike the Munros, Corbetts and Grahams"; thus many Donalds are also Corbetts or Grahams.[3][4] Percey Donald's original 1935 list recorded 133 Donalds,[a] however since 1997,[b] the SMC records 140 Donalds in the Scottish lowlands, split into 89 Donald Hills and 51 Donald Tops.[3] While the prominence of Donald Hills is over 100 feet (30.5 m), the prominence of a Donald Top can range from 16 feet (4.9 m), as in the case of Cairn Hill West Top, to 220 feet (67.1 m), in the case of Beninner.[4]

New Donalds were introduced by Alan Dawson in his 1995 book, The Grahams and the New Donalds,[6] with a prominence threshold of 30 m (98.4 ft), and that the location was south of the Highland Boundary Fault;[5] there are 118 New Donalds, and while all Donald Hills are New Donalds, 22 Donald Tops are not.[7] Climbers who climb all SMC Donalds are called Donaldists, the first being Percy Donald on 23 May 1933; a list is maintained.[8][9]

Donald mountains by height[edit]

This list is from the Database of British and Irish Hills ("DoBIH") in October 2018, and are peaks the DoBIH marks as being Donalds ("D" and "DT").[c][12] The SMC does not update the list of Donalds (they are fixed), however the DoBIH also updates their measurements as more surveys are recorded, so these tables should not be amended or updated unless the entire DoBIH data is re-downloaded again.

  One of the 22 Donalds not classed as a New Donald; being a Donald Top whose prominence is below 30 m (98.4 ft).
  Also classed as a Corbett ("C" § DoBIH codes).
  Also classed as a Graham ("G" § DoBIH codes).

DoBIH codes[edit]

The DoBIH uses the following codes for the various classifications of mountains and hills in the British Isles, which many of the above peaks also fall into:[13][14]


prefixes:
  • s sub
  • x deleted

suffixes:
= twin

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Donald's Tables as published by the SMC (initially in their 1935 Journal, subsequently as lesser heights in Munro's Tables). Percy Donald's criteria defining 'Hills' and 'Tops' produced an initial split of 86 Hills, and 133 total Donalds.[5]
  2. ^ Up until the 1997 edition of the Munro's Tables, the SMC excluded the Donalds of the Artney group (Map Section 26), but they adopted Alan Dawson's criteria that the geographic location as south of the Highland Boundary Fault; since 1997, the SMC have not changed the list of Donalds.[5]
  3. ^ The Database of British and Irish Hills ("DoBIH") is the most referenced database for the classification of peaks in the British Isles,[10] and the DoBIH is licensed under a "Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License".[11]
  4. ^ In the DoBIH, this is the "Parent (SMC)" code, which the DoBIH define as follows: "The hill number and name of the Munro or Donald to which Munro Tops and Donald Tops are linked. For Munro Tops the hierarchy is shown in Munro's Tables. For a few tops the parent is topographically incorrect on current mapping (i.e. not the hill linked by the highest col), e.g. the SMC parent of 527 Carn Lochan is Cairn Gorm rather than Ben Macdui, the parent of 1015 Stob Cadha Gobhlach is Sgurr Fiona instead of Bidein a' Ghlas Thuill, and the parent of 811 Ciste Dhubh is Mam Sodhail not Carn Eighe. For Donald Tops the 1953, 1969 and 1974 editions of Munro's Tables show the hierarchy correctly but later editions do not. For example, hill 1652 Ben Ever is a top of Ben Cleuch but from 1981 onwards is shown underneath Blairdenon Hill, and hill 1897 Coomb Dodd is shown above rather than below its parent Hillshaw Head. Parents of former Section 13—Appendix hills and the Glen Artney hills that entered the Tables in 1997 have been assigned by us."

  1. ^ "The Donalds and Donald Tops". HillBaggingUK. 2018. The Donalds are named after Percy Donald and his list of hills over 2000 feet in the Scottish Lowlands. They are based on a complicated formula for determining separate hills, and originally comprised 87 hills plus a number of other named "Tops".

  7. ^ "The New Donalds". HillBaggingUK. 2018. The New Donalds are an attempt to rationalize the qualifying criteria, being "hills in Central or Southern Scotland at least 2000 feet high (610m) with a drop of at least 30 metres (98 feet) all round". All New Donalds are either a Donald or a Donald Top, but some of the Donald Tops do not qualify as New Donalds.
