List Of Marilyns In The Southern Highlands
This is a list of the 458 Marilyns in the Highlands of Scotland, south of the Great Glen.
Marilyns are hills in the British Isles with a relative height of at least 150 metres (492 ft) irrespective of height. The list was compiled by Alan Dawson and published in The Relative Hills of Britain.
Included in the list are all Corbetts and Grahams in this part of Scotland. Corbetts are Scottish mountains that are 2500–3000 ft (762.0–914.4 m) high with a relative height of 500 feet (152.4 m). The list was compiled in the 1920s by John Rooke Corbett, a Bristol-based climber and SMC member, and was published posthumously after it was passed to the SMC by his sister. (A metric definition requiring 150 m of relative height is sometimes used; use of the broader definition does not result in any additional summits being included.) Grahams are Scottish mountains that are 2000–2500 ft (609.6–762.0 m) high. The list of hills fitting these criteria was first published by Alan Dawson in The Relative Hills of Britain under the provisional name Elsies (LCs, short for Lesser Corbetts). They were later named Grahams after the late Fiona Torbet (née Graham) who had compiled a similar list around the same time.
In the tables below, rows have been coloured according to which lists the hills are on. (Note that only Munros that are additionally Marilyns are included in this list — see also a complete list of Munros.)
In the parent column, the prominence parent is used, as opposed to any other definition of 'parent'. The prominence parent of peak A can be found by dividing the island or region in question into territories, by tracing the runoff from the key col of every peak that is higher than peak A. The parent is the peak whose territory peak A resides in.
Of the 458 Marilyns on this list, 121 are Munros, 100 are Corbetts, 93 are Grahams and 144 are none of those.

“Thirtythe promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
“My hearts in the Highlands, my heart is not here;
My hearts in the Highlands a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe:
My hearts in the Highlands, wherever I go.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
“I sometimes wonder that we can be so frivolous ... as to attend to the gross but somewhat foreign form of servitude called Negro Slavery, there are so many keen and subtle masters that enslave both north and south. It is hard to have a southern overseer; it is worse to have a northern one; but worst of all when you are the slave-driver of yourself.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“All is possible,
Who so list believe;
Trust therefore first, and after preve,
As men wed ladies by license and leave,
All is possible.”
—Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?1542)
