The Fionas

The Fionas is the new name for the traditional Grahams - the hills from 2000' high upto Corbett height

The Fionas are the mountains in Scotland between 2000 and 2500 feet high, with at least 150 metres of descent on all sides. This is the same list of hills you need to climb to register your ascent of Grahams with the Scottish Mountaineering Club.

They are named after the late hillwalker Fiona Torbet (maiden name Graham) who came up with the idea of a list of hills from 2000' to 2500', to add to the Munros and Corbetts. This extended the work of J Rooke Corbett whose list covered 2500' - 3000' and was the first to include the idea of a necessary relative height before hills were considered to be separate peaks. Her list, which covered only Highland peaks, was published in the Great Outdoors magazine.

A 150m separation was then agreed betweem Fiona and Alan Dawson, who had created a list of all British hills with 150m of ascent on all sides, and the resulting 2000-2500' hills with 150m separation - now extended to the whole of Scotland - was called the Grahams. However, a registered trademark has been obtained on the use of that name, since 2022 use of the term requires abandonment of the historic 2000' criterion, and a split into 10 specified regions. For that reason, and to keep with the traditional criteria, the hills between 2000' and 2500' on Walkhighlands are now known as the Fionas.

You can record all your hill ascents here on your own interactive baggers map, and keep a diary, complete with photos, maps and your gps tracks, to store your record of all your walking exploits. We also feature the Munros, Corbetts and other hills and walks.

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