UK Hill Tables

Using the Tables

The tables below are based on the sterling work carried out by the supporters of The Database of British & Irish Hills, a comprehensive list of every hill and mountain in the UK. They are personalised for me, allowing me to keep track of my progress against the various lists and perhaps serve to guide me to search for new places to walk.

To that effect they are provided as-is, with no guarantee of accuracy, but the database is an almost exact replica of the DoBIH. Use the link above to download a full copy for your own use.

My Most Visited Hills

This is simply a list of the hills I have visited most. I've avoided calling this my 'Favourite Hills' list, because although some of these are indeed firm favourites, this is not that list.

Hill Table for England

Cross of St. George

These are the hill tables for England and my progress so far against them. In most cases I am not actively pursuing the completion of a complete hill classification, but they get ticked off as I visit sub-categories, such as the Yorkshire Dales Tops or Wainwrights, or as a by-product of Trig Point walks. In fact I'm surprised at how many tops I've actually done this way

Hill Table for Scotland

Saint Andrew's Cross (The Saltire)

I've done very little walking in Scotland and this is reflected in the very low completion figures for all these categories.

Hill Table for Wales

Y Ddraig Goch (The Red Dragon)

Just like Scotland, I've done very little walking in Wales, apart from doing three days along Offa's Dyke and doing a few excursions to the Clwydians.
