From The BBC: really dude, who gives a ...

Scotland has lost a Munro. The Munro Society has discovered that Sgurr Nan Ceanniachean in Wester Ross does not meet the required height to be a Munro.

Latest measuring technology showed that the mountain is actually 913.4 metres in height - almost a full metre short of Munro height.

The reading has been verified by the Ordnance Survey and the hill will now be considered a Corbet.

It still leaves 283 Munros for hillwalkers to climb.

Members of The Munro Society who carried out the measurement are being encouraged to stay in more.
