About Us

Climb The Munros has been around in one form or another since 2004. It started up as a personal website by founder Fraser Dickson to document his own quest to conquer all the Munros.  This proved very popular and received much positive feedback.  Users liked the personal nature of the site which we have always strived to keep and will continue to do so.

 In 2009 the site was rapidly expanded to introduce interactivity within the site to allow users to add there own, routes, images and memories from their own days on the hill. We completely redesigned the site within this period to integrate new mapping technology that has been made available by Google and the Ordnance Survey. 

We set the business up to share our experiences of the Munros with the rest of the Munro community and allow other Members to contribute there own experiences good or bad !  The  Munros may not be the biggest mountains in the world but what they lack in height they more than make up for in diversity. With this site we hope to promote every aspect of Scottish mountaineering and the great outdoors.  The site allows us to collate everyone's routes, images and stories in one place where you can dip into whenever the mood takes you and escape to some virtual hill walking to beat the monogamy of the 9-5!
