The Relative Hill Lists of Great Britain

The Relative Hills Society has adopted three major metric relative hills in Great Britain (Marilyns, Humps and Tumps) which many of our members collect. 

Relative hill lists are based on hill prominence and are not restricted by location or minimum height. Three other metric lists are also commonly collected: two height-based, plus a list of islands.

Learn more about the different types of hills and why they appeal:

We list the main changes to these lists in our list of major hill list updates.

Many of our members also collect and discuss other established hill lists such as the Corbetts, Munros, Nuttalls and Wainwrights. In most cases, our members developed their love for the British hills and hill lists while ticking off these other lists. These overlap with the Relative hills lists, but we focus on promoting the benefits of the Relative hills. 

The Halls of Fame

We publish the latest number of ascents by hill baggers within the Halls of Fame which feature in our annual journal, Relative Matters. Learn more about the Halls of Fame. We also publish International Halls of Fame.
