Communities and organisations
- The Relative Hills of Britain
Comprehensive resource and focus for the RHB community.
- RHB group
Forum for baggers of Marilyns and Humps. Members can opt for a daily digest by email. Nowadays it is mainly used for notifications. The related Facebook group carries general traffic from walkers sharing photos and experiences on the hills.
- The Tump Forum
Essential resource for Tump baggers. All changes to the list are announced here. Also covers Simms and Dodds. Members can opt for a daily email alerting them to new postings.
- Relative Hills Society
For baggers of metric lists. The magazine Relative Matters (not available online) has taken over from Marhofn, whose last issue was in 2016.
Long established site with an online community and resources for the Irish hillwalker. Run by a committee with whom we share data and surveying expertise.
- The Munro Society
Society open to Munro "compleaters". One of its objectives was to check the heights of marginal qualifiers on Munro's list, for which it commissioned surveys by the DoBIH survey team (G&J Surveys). This resulted in Sgurr nan Ceannaichean and Beinn a'Chlaidheimh being reclassified as Corbetts, and Knight's Peak deleted from the Munro Tops.
