Welcome to the online version of the
Database of British and Irish Hills (DoBIH)
There are many recognised
lists of hills and mountains in Britain and Ireland - all the well-known
lists and a good many of the less popular ones are covered here. Click on the required list name on the adjacent map, or use
the mountain search facility.
You can use this website to
log your own progress against these lists - simply
register a Username and Password (free), and follow the instructions on the registry page.
Please note that inclusion of a hill on this site does not necessarily mean it is accessible. In particular, some hill
summits are on land where there is no public right of way nor open access.
You can view a log of recent and
changes to the DoBIH - some of these changes are applied
to this website before they are generally released on DoBIH. Refer to the Database Notes
section of the DoBIH website ( www.hills-database.co.uk) for version
release notes and other changes to the database.
survey reports from the DoBIH survey team are available here for download. A number of people have
asked if they could contribute to the running of this website or the DoBIH. I would like to direct such generosity towards the
Survey Fund which goes towards purchasing and operating our survey equipment, whose costs
are considerable - please use the button below...
