Hillwalking site launched
Bookmark and Share
A new hillwalking site has been launched, aimed at those working their way down various tick lists.

UKhillwalking.com is a sister site of the existing UKclimbing.com and is aimed at offering people a chance to plan routes, find out information and enjoy discussion debates with other walkers over everything from favourite peaks to which walking boots are best.

And users can log in to build their own records of ascents made, ensuring the can track their progress or simply be able to recall exactly when they claimed various hills.

Tick lists include three kinds in Scotland - the Munros for the peaks over 3,000 ft, the Corbetts for those between 2,500 and 2,999 ft. and the Grahams for hills between 2,000 and 2,499 ft, with these numbering 283, 221 and 224 respectively.

These numbers changed in 2009 when a re-survey of several peaks around 3,000 ft saw Sgurr nan Ceannaichean demoted from Munro status to a Corbett when it was found to be only 2,997 ft high, not 3,002 ft as previously measured.
