From cycling to caving, the UK’s hills and mountains are hotbeds for outdoor action. Here’s a few of the best, as chosen by you
The Ochil Hills above the town of Dollar, Scotland. My favourite walk is up to Castle Campbell, via Dollar Glen. The castle itself is flanked by two chasms which gives it oodles of drama and intrigue. Ed Papton

Butser Hill, Hampshire. It’s the highest point of the South Downs proper, and it’s the most English of hills – green and gentle overlooking miles of farmland.
Cadair Idris, Wales, mainly because of Cyfrwy Arete, which is a really nice climb.
Helvellyn – the name itself conjours up images of an epic peak!
Any of the Mendip Hills are winners for me, especially around Cheddar Gorge. One of, if not the best, places for caving in the UK.

Cleeve Hill, Gloucestersire – the cycle up there is one of the toughest, but most satisfying, I’ve attempted.
Beacon Hill, Leicestershire. A throwback to my Loughborough uni days – we’d walk up there from campus with a bag full of books and revise in the sun.
Slieve Martin, Northern Ireland. A magical place where the mountains of Mourne reach the Irish Sea. On a clear day, the views are out of this world.
Corby Craggs, an exposed rock face on Alnwick Moor, Northumberland. The views across the Moor to the Cheviot Hills are some of the region’s finest.

Primrose Hill, London. I come here on days I can’t get out of the city – it’s the best spot in London to practise hill-running.
