GB Hill Maps

Home


Welcome to HillMaps - the site for The Armchair Hill Walker.

Here you can find information on British mountains and hills, and view them on a variety of map formats. There are links to weather forecasts, webcams, and some stunning summit photography. You can also read advice on equipment, clothing, and safety in the hills from the main rescue and mountaineering organisations.

These maps and associated data are not intended for direct use on the hills. There is no substitute for competent map reading, compass skills, and interpreting the scenery.

Hopefully, the resources found on this site will help you choose and plan your next adventure.
