Forget Mount Everest, the Cotswolds has its own mountain to climb.

While not quite the near-9,000 metre climb of Everest, Cleeve Hill is still an daunting challenge for many.

Now, you can begin ticking off all of the highest climbs in Britain by taking part in ‘Peak Bagging’.

Outdooractive, Europe’s largest digital outdoor tourism platform, has identified the highest place in each county and made walking guides with different levels of difficulty to suit all abilities.

Sarah Beckworth of Outdooractive said: “Peak bagging is a fantastic pastime and great way to discover more of the UK and set yourself a challenge.

“For each historic county we have identified a selection of walks that can take you to the summit (or near to it if it’s on private land).

“Simply download the app to become part of the Outdooractive community, register for the challenge and follow the route using your phone as a sat-nav.”

She added: “There are a choice of walks for each peak, graded by difficulty, with information about accessibility.

“It is easy to record your route as you walk so you can see how far you have walked, height gained, and time taken – and of course log your adventure in this challenge.”

The challenge is being supported by outdoor brand Vango, who are offering prizes to those who take part.

Andrea Rennie, Marketing Manager for Vango, said: “Many people have camped in the UK for the first time this summer and perhaps seen parts of the country they hadn’t explored before.

“The mountains are an exciting ambition, but there are many places closer to home that offer an enjoyable day out.

“By teaming up with Outdooractive we hope to make it easy to find great places to walk and offering a challenge makes it more fun.”

There are 118 climbs to complete across the British Isles.
