A Munro is a mountain in Scotland with a height over 3,000 ft (914.4 m). Munros are named after Sir Hugh Munro, 4th Baronet (1856–1919), who produced the first list of such hills, known as Munros Tables, in 1891. A Munro top is a summit that is not regarded as a separate mountain and which is over 3,000 feet. In the 2012 revision of the tables, published by the Scottish Mountaineering Club, there are 282 Munros and 227 further subsidiary tops. The best known Munro is Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. The Munros of Scotland present challenging conditions to hikers, nevertheless a popular practice amongst hillwalkers is ”Munro bagging”, the aim being to climb all of the listed Munros.
In 1982 Peckham’s opened their first shop, in Clarence Drive beyond the West end of Glasgow, and in 1987 at Byres Road, to served their first inquisitive customer. A family owned Scottish company, the aim with Peckham’s was to provide a personal and friendly service while offering foods of the highest quality, many of which were not then available north of the border. Also part of their initial ethos is to be late-opening, with most stores opening until eight or ten o’clock in the evening which is quite unusual for Scotland.
Peckham’s is the trading name for a chain of specialist grocery stores owned by Peckham & Rye Ltd and with branches throughout Scotland, particularly in Glasgow. Peckham’s advertises itself as a vintners, victuallers, and restaurateurs company.
