Adopt a Munro

How to adopt a Munro

Use the map below to find your chosen Munro. Summits are clustered together to make it easier to use the map, you will need to zoom in to see individual Munros. Clicking on the layers icon (top left) will enable you show only available Munros or adopted Munros on the map. If you prefer, you can check Munro availability from a list of summits using the link either above or below the map.

Click on the pin for your chosen Munro to show its current adoption and sampling status. The 'view more information' link will take you to the page for that Munro where you can view the summit grid reference and elevation (useful when Munros with the same name are located close together).

To adopt your Munro you must first have logged in to the website using the link on the home page. Click on the pin for your chosen Munro and select the 'adopt' link. This will take you to a page showing the Munro details. In the drop down boxes under the map change 'available for adoption' to 'adopted' and click on the Save button at the bottom of the page. We will then send you the sampling pack for your chosen Munro.

When you have sampled your Munro

When you have completed your Munro sampling log in to the website and come back to this page to change the status of your Munro to 'sampled' and upload photographs of your three sampling plots. Instructions on how to do this are included in your sampling pack.


A list of the Munros is also available
