In reply to G4OWG:

Indeed, a new Marilyn, this one has been brewing for a while as there was a report back in 2003 that it may exceed 153m difference. Anyway it is now out as a Marilyn and the drop is confirmed as 150m5. The GM list will be updated once the RHB list is published and a date for when this summit becomes valid for SOTA will be published at the same time.

The details are:

Area: Arran
Section: Jura, Islay, Arran and Nearby Islands
Country: Scotland
Height: 480m / 1575ft
Grid Ref: NR914401

Hi Andy
Just been checking back in RHB notes and it appears the agreed system now for changes is they only occur after a vote at the annual meeting. Next one June 2009.
Seems eminently sensible to me :wink:
