A Marilyn is a hill of any height with a drop of 150 metres or more on all sides. The Marilyns in Britain and the Isle of Man were first listed in the book The Relative Hills of Britain (RHB) by Alan Dawson, published by Cicerone Press in April 1992. Marilynists are people who have climbed all hills that were classed as Marilyns at the time they recorded finishing the list.

Current number of Marilyns: 1556
