Munro Bagging

Think you’ve heard of every travel trend going? Well think again.

Because there’s a niche new travel trend for keen walkers and hikers who love exploring north of the border: and it’s called Munro bagging.

For the uninitiated, Scotland’s Munros are mini-mountains and high hills (3,000 ft or taller) with amazing views of the lochs and moors – perfect for rare wildlife spotting and soaking up the beauty of the Highlands.


There’s plenty of wildlife in this part of Scotland

Bagging yourself a Munro literally means navigating to the top, to conquer the peak – whether it be on a signposted pathway at one of the easier Munros, or through forests, nature reserves and bogs for more hardy walkers.

Munro Bagging Path

Places like Loch Lomond andΒ The Trossachs National Park are popular places to start because of their famed natural beauty but collecting all the Munros is the long term goal for many.

Loch Lomond Scenery

Named after Sir Hugh Munro, the chap who first charted the hills back in 1891, locations stretch all the way to the North of Scotland; imagine how surprised Sir Hugo would be to see maps of his namesake mountains causing such a stir in 2018.

The Loch Lomond area Munros

If you fancy bagging a few Munros for yourself, or just want a beautiful map of Bonnie Scotland to adorn your wall, you can enter the competition to win this Munro Bagging Scratch Print by the expert map makers at Maps International.

    Bring on the whisky map!

  • Imogen

    I’d love the Munro Map! I’m moving to Scotland in a few weeks and I’ve got my sights set on a few of those Munros already 😍

    • Wow so it would be perfect timing! Good luck Imogen πŸ™‚

  • That Whisky map is all mine! Just sayin, ya’ll!

    • You’ve just been on holiday to Scotland haven’t you? Keen to come back no doubt!

      • Yes, we are! Did you do a remodel on the site recently? Looks good. Oh and one other thing, I noticed that you entered my map giveaway. But, unfortunately, Pushpins Maps will only ship inside the States. Sorry.

        • Yes I recently redesigned this site to make it look prettier and be a little easier to use, thanks for noticing πŸ™‚ Ah fair enough on shipping, this map will ship worldwide πŸ™‚

  • Erin

    I’d definitely choose the Munro Bagging Map. One of the items on my bucket list is to climb a small mountain (yes, I wrote ‘small mountain’ haha) and another item is to visit Scotland. Guess I could do both at the same time and then scratch it off the map!

    • A small mountain is still a mountain – and better than sitting on the couch!

  • Dave Mc

    I’d pick the Munro Bagging print, would be a great way to motivate myself to get out and do more of them!

  • Mennastocks

    I love my whisky, but think it’d have to be the Munro one as that would be the more healthier motivator!

    • I’m with you – it’s good to have some motivation to get outside especially in winter!

  • Tom J Morrison

    I’d choose the scotch whisky map so as I know where all the distilleries are next time I visit

  • OurFamilyTravel

    They are both so cool but I would choose the Scottish Distilleries Map.

  • Lucy Dodsworth

    My sister lives in Scotland and loves hiking so the munro one would be a perfect Christmas present!

    • Yes, it’s a great Christmas gift I have my eye on one or two maps for friends and family.

  • Love that it is called bagging! I think this is what Mr P does when we in Cumbria….. Like making me walk up a waterfall that he thought was the footpath that was 10 metres to the right…

    • lol, we’ve all done silly things like that on walks!

  • A scratch off whisky map for sure! Far to many munros to scratch off. I need a scotch just thinking about it! They’re such a great idea. I’d love a UK gin map too!! Might have to make myself one.

  • Sara @ Travel Continuum

    Munro Bagging for me – I recently spent a fabulous few days in Dumfries & Galloway and would love to return to see more of Scotland….plus….it sounds like a Scottish version of PokΓ©mon GO! πŸ˜€

    • Haha I hadn’t thought of the Pokemon comparison!

  • Holly Lenk

    Well this is simply ideal – and such a fabulous country too! Hard to go wrong with either choice, but I think I will enter for the Munro Bagging. I love the distilleries however on my next trip I would like to explore some of these magnificent hikes, beginner ones mind you πŸ˜‰

    • Woohoo, I’m glad to hear you already have a ‘next visit’ to Scotland planned πŸ™‚

  • WhenI finally get to Scotland I can see I’ll be doing a lot of munro bagging. So many trails, but what a great way to explore a beautiful country!

    • The walking is endless up there, I can’t wait to go back and bag a Munro or two πŸ™‚

  • This is such a cool idea Jai! I’m moving up to Scotland soon, and although my boyfriend is a massive whisky fiend I think the Munro map would benefit us both much more! :p

    • You’re moving to Scotland that’s so cool! Well done going for the healthy choice on the maps πŸ™‚

  • Jan Morse DePatty

    I am not much of a hiker so I guess it would have to be the distillery map :). Looking forward to our trip to Scotland in 2019!

    • I wonder where you are off to? I’d like to get up to Aberdeen and Stirling next year myself πŸ™‚

  • Melody Wilson

    Mmm…whiskey. Can’t wait for our family trip, we will do a little of the hiking and probably more of the scotching. πŸ˜‰

    • Scotland is a really great place for a family vacation – it’s incredibly safe and friendly. But on one hike I did see a teenage girl looking quite sulky at being made to walk up a mountain by her parents when she would rather be online. lol. She’ll appreciate it when she’s older πŸ˜‰

  • Staci Roe

    Ooh… the distillery map for sure. Going to Scotland for the first time in 6 months!!

    • Woohoo! I am excited for you. Scotland is such a special place but I’ll bet the friendliness is what will really stay with you, it’s very warm and welcoming.

  • Mary Gerrard

    I have recently found out that I am Scottish on my paternal side. I have been “drinking” up as much history as I can about my ancestors who were from Aberdeenshire. Obviously, I would love either map as the first Scottish heirloom to have.

    • My Canadian partner is Scottish on his maternal side and he was so excited to visit Scotland for the first time this year – I hope you can visit for yourself soon and soak up more history πŸ™‚

  • Lizzie Smith

    I’d love the Distillery Map. These maps are a great idea for travelers.

    • They make pretty cool gifts I think, I actually have my eye on the gin one!

  • Chris Togher

    Love this! I’d love to win the Scotch Whisky Scratch Print (Distillery Map)

    • It is a really nice map – shame a bottle of whisky doesn’t come in the box too right? πŸ™‚

      • Chris Togher

        That would be a bonus! haha

  • Bob Connolly

    Distillery please!

  • Kasi Kinzie

    I love maps too! It is definitely not nerdy! I would take the munro map. Thanks for the chance.

    • Nice to meet a fellow cartophile πŸ™‚ There’s something so exciting about maps isn’t there?!

  • Eileen Kerrigan

    I’d love to win the whisky distilleries map for my daughter! Her dad’s family (three generations back) came from Bowmore on the Isle of Islay — home of the famous Bowmore Scotch whiskies — and she’s always wanted to do a “whisky trail” tour of Scotland πŸ™‚ We did go to Scotland in May/June, but didn’t do a whisky-specific tour — maybe next time! Until then, I know she’d love this!

    • The whisky tasting tour sounds like the perfect family trip for you then!

      • Eileen Kerrigan

        If only I could stomach the taste of whisky! πŸ˜€ Sadly, it makes me gag — had to stick to wine and beer during our trip!

  • Cindy Reed-Dyball

    I would love the Distilleries Map or the Munro Bagging Map, they are both awesome!

    I would do the Munro bagging map!!!

    I would love the Scottish Whisky Distilleries map as I’ve already visited a few (Tomatin, Glenfarclas, Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Glen Grant, Cardhu, and Tallisker). I could start scratching some off right away. 😊

  • Jacquelyn Molnar

    Would love the whisky map!!!!

  • Stoobz

    I would choose the whisky map so I could sit with a dram and dream of the munros I have climbed and those I would love to climb if I can get out of my armchair

  • @philonise1

    I would love the Munro Map! So very cool!!

  • April Schmitt

    love your Blog πŸ™‚
    I would also love the Munro Bagging Scratch Print, what a wonderful way to spend a break and my dream has always been to visit Scotland!

    • It’s a real ‘break’ when you go walking up there – ideally with no phone signal haha!

  • Karen Litterick-Laroque

    Yes maybe this is where I comment. I would love to bag the old folks Munro’s. Hope to bag a couple one day. Have already enjoyed a couple distilleries

    • Thanks for your entry, I’d like to bag one munro one day – starting with small goals πŸ™‚

  • Col40h

    My husband and I have visited two distilleries and would love a map to discover a few more and have a dram or two on our next visit.

  • Linda Jane Berwick

    That Macallan is what you want in your hipflask to celebrate the top of any Munro ahl say……and the munros map is perfect πŸ™‚

  • fugitivesquirrel

    Would love a Whisky Map, though after a few drams it might be hard to scratch off the bits!

  • Brenda Barnhart

    What better combination then whisky after a wonderful day of munro bagging… Or just a good whisky on any day πŸ™‚ Whisky distillery map would help with the day dreaming

  • Rocky Bloskas

    Only got to visit the Oban distillery on our visit to Scotland. Going back in either 2018 or 2019 and would love the map to help us decide on our distillery tour!

  • Emily Dye

    I would love to bag a munro someday!

  • Troy Beecroft

    Love the Scotland whisky scratch map. Would make a perfect “where we were” on our upcoming trip!

  • Ingrid Briggs

    I would love the munro bagging map – sounds like fun! but my hubbie would love love love the Scotch Whisky map and I am partial to a dram or two – so as a christmas present let’s go the Scotch Whisky map!!

    • What a good wife, he is lucky to have you πŸ™‚

  • Paul Streater

    A difficult choice between two of my favourite things; on balance, time spent in the hills gives me memories of a greater range of sensations than even the finest malt! A Munro map would be a constant reminder of long days in wonderful places.

  • Lillian Liles Sams

    This is a tough choice as I am fond of whisky and plan to bag my first munro in 2018. I think I will go with the Whisky Map as that will be the first thing I do after bagging the munro.

  • Derek

    Mmmm the Distillery map for sure!

  • Rachael Nadeau Johnson

    I would love the distilleries map.
