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.  Permission should be sought from the landowner where access to a hill is through private land.  Note that access rights in Scotland differ from the rest of the UK.

You can view a log of recent 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.

The 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 DoBIH Fund which goes towards the development of the database and purchasing and operating survey equipment - please use the button below...

What's New - recent changes to this website
 As Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease (as of when they do by country) a reminder to be more sensitive than usual to other's fears and feelings:
  • Plan your route so that, where possible, you avoid going close to other's properties
  • If there is a debate about access, perhaps a graceful and prompt retreat would be the best course
  • When recording ascents think carefully about what you record
  • Remember some summits may be inaccessible, even if on a list
 
COVID-19: Please heed government advice and restrictions concerning unnecessary travel and social distancing. The hills will still be there when this is all over. Note that there is separate advice for each country:
