A munro is a mountain in Scotland with a height over 3,000 ft (914.4 m). They are named after Sir Hugh Munro (1856-1919) who produced the first list of such hills, known as Munros Tables®, in 1891.
As of the 2012 revision of the Tables, published by the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC), there are 282 munros. This App is based on the 2012 revision.
(Munros Tables is a registered trademark of the SMC.)

- Adding a completion date and notes.
- Sorting the list (by munro name, by munro section,
by height, by completed, or by completion date).
- Using a different colour to highlight completed munros.
