Re: Classifications
weedavie - glad to see you are still following things over here - our current list includes 14 tops of 914m (3000ft) or above:
Cnoc na Péiste
Caher West Top
Maolán Bui
Carrauntoohil Tooth
Cnoc an Chuillin
Brandon Mtn
The Big Gun
Cruach Mhór
L.Coimín Móir Mtn
however this list is constructed on the basis of a 15m prominence only, that is each top need only be 15m above the nearest col. Someday we will revise the database so you can specify a list in terms of the height of a mountain and its prominence.
I'm not sure that the issue of over-used summits is ever going to be as serious here as it is has become in Britain. Be that as it may, MountainViews encourages people to visit the less used places (all 458 as currently classified) of the 500m peaks. Many of the least used, totally trackless places are the most interesting.

And I agree with you, the term "Munro" is a category for Scottish mountains.

Tooreennamna: False Summits abound

This summit, at least on the approach from Glenbeg Lough, is characterised by the number of false summits that emerge as you gain height.
