/ What are the best mountains to climb in the UK?
It depends what you mean by best, ie best for walking? Scrambling? Climbing? Views?
But its bound to be one of these-
Buachaille etive mor
Cadair is a cracking walk though, I enjoy it much more than snowdon.
Tryfan, the perfect scrambling climb and especially good for novices.
Skye Cuillin and the mountains on either side of Glen Nevis and Glen Coe.
In rough order, best at top:
Sgurr nan Gilllean
My Top 10 in terms of visual appeal and a great day out:-
=1st Tryfan, and no one has mentioned that delightful little gem Cnicht
3rd Sgurr Alasdair
4th Sgurr nan Gillian
5th Snowdon (Horseshoe)
7th Pavey Ark via Jack's Rake
8th Pen y Fan
10th Goat Fell (Isle of Aran)
Fine hills above all of them, but for my money you'd have to add:
Ladhar Bheinn- for the hill and its situation
Round of Loch Mullardoch- for the wildness. Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan in particular. (2/3 days for a mortal though).
There's four or five decent sized hills of that (or extremely similar) name in Scotland, and they're all good
Hmmm, just thinking that myself!
Hope all is well - perhaps he's just feeling a little peaky <gets coat, shuffles off>... either that, or he's just given up his one-man quest for the correct nomenclature of our beloved area.
