Want to do some bagging, but feeling uninspired by stumpy satellites and bumps in a plateau? Then this is the list for you, composed of only the finest mountains in Scotland. Not quite irrespective of size, as we all know size matters, but taking into consideration the overall aesthetic of the hill and its surroundings. Also included are some of the best mountaineering routes to gain and traverse these summits, including graded climbs where they are irresistably the 'line' of the mountain. Work in progress.
