‘Are we nearly there yet?” The much-dreaded phrase came loudly from over my shoulder as we edged nearer to the coast. In fairness it had taken longer to arrive than I had anticipated. This was, after all, the final stretch of our two-day circular walk around Exmoor national park. I took a deep breath, sighed, and turned to my 68-year-old father. “Yep, nearly there dad,” I said. We were on a self-guided walking weekend trying out the National Trust’s newest kind of accommodation – the camping bothy.
Forget measurements: when it comes to hillwalking, height really doesn’t matter. For Phoebe Smith, author of Britain's Best Small Hills, what it's really about is getting outside and exploring some of the beautiful countryside that is (often) right on your doorstep. Scotland is home to many fantastic small hills that will make you want to adventure in the great outdoors – here are some of her favourites.
Many famous mountain walking lists out there are based on height: think of the ‘National Three Peaks’ (the highest mountains in England, Wales and Scotland), the ‘Yorkshire Three Peaks’ (the loftiest three in Yorkshire) and the ‘Welsh 3000s’ (all 14 mountains in Wales over 3,000ft/914m). This might make you doubt that smaller peaks can be any good. But those who shun peaks based on their vital statistics are truly missing out.
Fear not to try the mountain passes - they will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action... #GetOutsidehttps://t.co/Tl1x8T0waL
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
