A note on sources

The sources for the data used in the Hillwalkers' Register(s) are detailed here

 

It is planned that the detailed information on "sources" currently contained on the main Hillwalkers' Register web-pages will be collected here.   This will increase the accessibility of the main Register pages, and enable all sources to be viewed "at a glance".

It is anticipated that this work will be completed during 2017.  In the meantime, and until further notice, please rely on the description of sources in the Introduction and Registers 1 to 5, and ignore what follows, which is stil 'experimental'.

On-line sources are now usually the most convenient and accurate (because regularly maintained).  Here are the main ones that I know of.  Please let me know of others:  after investigation they will be incorporated here.  However, other than in exceptional circumstances, I will not add an on-line source which covers only part of a register.

On-line sources:

Register 4:  The 2000ft Mountains of Ireland

Tables for Ireland are less frequent than those for Great Britain, and in many cases are difficult or imposible to obtain.  I have never seen a copy of  , not even in the Cambridge University Library!

For a list, you are strongly recommended to use one of the two on-line sources, DoBIH or Mountainviews, at the top of the list which follows.  Alternatively Dillon (1992) and Clements (1997) are normally still available.  Dillon (1992) is the only guidebook for (as distinct from list of) the 2,000ft Mountains of Ireland.

Note that Gribbon (2015), listed under Register 3 above, is not, and does not purport to be an acceptable reference for this register.

Sources are shown below in the normal style:  on-line first, then published works in alphabetical order, with those fairly easy to obtain shown in bold.
