This is a list of Furths, a "Furth" or "Furth Munro" being a mountain or top over 3,000 feet (914.4 m) high in the British Isles that is furth of (i.e. "outside") Scotland, that would otherwise be classed as a Munro or Munro Top if it were located in Scotland.[1][2][3] Traditionally a mountain only qualifies as a Furth if it has a drop of at least 30 metres (98 feet) on all sides.[4]

The Scottish Mountaineering Club lists a total of 34 Furths in all; 6 in England, 15 in Wales and 13 in Ireland (none in Northern Ireland).[5] This compares with the 282 Munros and 227 further "tops" in Scotland.

In addition to the SMC Clerk of the List recording Furth completions, further details can be found at Final Furths and Furthists.
