UK Mountain Database

The YouAreEmpty.net Database contains details of all peaks in the UK over 150m / 500ft. You can browse the database using all the popular tick lists, including Munro's and Wainwright's. In addition to this you can search for peaks via geographical area.

Llanberis Pass

Work is underway on version 2 of this database which will allow users to log which mountains they have climbed and submit pictures and comments for each peak. Watch this space!

Finally thanks must go to Chris Crocker and Graham Jackson for developing the Database of British Hills, which has been used to provide the underlying data for this section of the site.

Browse the Munros

Based on a list originally published in 1891 by Sir Hugh Munro, Munros are Scottish hills that are at least 3000 feet in height and deemed to be distinct and separate mountains. Today the Scottish Mountaineering Council is responsible for managing the list.

Browse the Munro Tops

Munro Tops are subsidiary summits to Munros which although meeting the height criterion for a Munro is not deemed to be separate.

Browse the Murdos

Murdos are Scottish hills that are at least 3000 feet in height but with a drop of at least 30 metres on all sides. All Murdos except Beinn a'Chroin are also Munro Tops but some Munro Tops fail to qualify as Murdos.

Browse the Corbetts

Corbetts are the range of Scottish hills beneath Munros. They must be between 2500 and 2999 feet high with a drop of 500 feet (150m aprox.) on all sides.

Browse the Corbett Tops

Corbett Tops are subsidiary summits to Munros and/or Corbetts. They are between 2500 and 2999 feet high with a drop of at least 30 metres on all sides.

Browse the Grahams

Grahams are Scottish hills which are between 2000 and 2499 feet high with a drop of 150 metres on all sides.

Browse the Donalds

Donalds are found in the Scottish Lowlands and are at least 2000 feet high. Donald Tops are all elevations with a drop of at least 100 feet (30m aprox.) on all sides and elevations of sufficient topographical merit with a drop of between 50 and 100 feet. Certain of these are designated 'Hills' according to a complex formula based on both distance and drop.

Browse the Hewitts

Hewitts are hills within both England and Wales that are at least 2000 feet high with a drop of 30 metres on all sides.

Browse the Nuttalls

Nuttalls are hills in England and Wales that are at least 2000 feet high with a drop of 15 metres on all sides. The list includes many minor summits not qualifying as Hewitts. The most notable of these is Pillar Rock in the Lakes whose ascent by the easiest route is a Moderate rock climb or Grade 3 scramble.

Browse the Wainwrights

The Wainwrights are a group of 214 hills, made famous by the 7 Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells written by Alfred Wainwright.

Browse the Wainwright Outlying Fells

Wainwright Outlying Fells are hills listed in The Outlying Fells of Lakeland by Alfred Wainwright. It may appear that the database contains fewer hills than given by Wainwright. This selection is derived from the list of summits given at the back of the book. This list actually contains 110 named summits, but closer inspection shows eight of them to refer to other hills in the list.

Browse the Marilyns

Marilyns are British hills of any height with a drop of at least 150 metres on all sides. The geographical area includes the Isle of Man and the islands of St Kilda.

Browse the Marilyn Twin Peak

A Marilyn Twin Peak is a summit of equal height to a nearby Marilyn where the drop between the two is less than 150m.
