The Sub 2000' Marilyns of Scotland

The Marilyns are the Relative Hills of Britain. Devised by Alan Dawson, they make up all the hills in the UK that rise at least 500 feet their surrounding land.

All of the Corbetts and Grahams and the majority of the Munros are also Marilyns. Rather than replicate all these peaks, Walkhighlands covers here only the Marilyns below 2000 feet in height i.e. those that do not appear on any of the other hill lists.

Use the links o browse through these Sub2000' hills. Each hill has its own page, offering a link to the detailed route description (with 1:25 000 OS map, GPS waypoints and more) as well as other members' accounts of their ascents.

Many thanks are due to Alan Dawson for his permission to use the lists he originally devised in his book, the Relative Hills of Britain, and his Relative Hills website which is the top place for Marilyn news.
