Scottish Separation
Adding a 100 metre filter wouldn't significantly hit the Scottish Munro list. Tolmount and Tom Buidhe would disappear from the list to everyone's total indifference but I'd be surprised if there was much more than a dozen casualties - mostly east of the A9. Moving to the 150 metres, the qualification for Grahams, or 152.4 metres, for Corbetts, would cut a real swathe - the 13 Munros of the Mounth would be reduced to 2 and most of the spurious 1997 promotion would be out . I think the final total would be 204 survivors out of 283. (It was 284 but Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was dropped a few weeks ago as a result of a resurvey which put it back among the Corbetts after 35 years in the Premier League.)
