A Furth Munro is a mountain of over 3,000 feet in the British Isles outside Scotland.
Scotland has a wealth of mountains over 3,000 feet, which are termed Munros after Sir Hugh Munro, 4th Baronet (1856–1919), who produced the first Munros Tables in 1891, which tables are maintained and revised as necessarily by the Scottish Mountaineering Club.
The Scottish Mountaineering Club recognises thirty-four peaks which would be Munros or Munro Tops if they had had the good fortune to be in Scotland. These theerfore are "the Munros furth of Scotland", and known as "Furth Munroes".
