A guidebook to walking all the Marilyns in Britain - the hills that are high with regard to the surrounding land with a drop of 150m or more on all sides. How many hills are there in Britain? Has anyone climbed them all? Where is there for hillwalkers to go in the south of England? What is a hill anyway? This book dispenses with the common assumption that a hill must be at least 2000ft high to be worth climbing. Instead it concentrates on listing all the hills that are relatively high compared to the surrounding land (Marilyns) leading to some interesting results: for example, the highest points in the Cotswolds and Chilterns, Campsies and Quantocks are all included, as well as the main summits on numerous Scottish islands, whereas well-known mountain summits such as Cairn Gorm, Bowfell and Carnedd Dafydd do not qualify. As well as being an invaluable reference work for all walkers, this book contains a fascinating collection of not too serious facts and figures. The book is illustrated by a set of photographs and a large number of very clear maps, which make it easy to locate all the hills in each region.
