It depends what you mean by best, ie best for walking? Scrambling? Climbing? Views?

But its bound to be one of these-

Liathach
An teallach
Buachaille etive mor
Ben nevis
Snowdon

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 reply to Rigid Raider: I have to go with Tryfan at the lower end, and Sgurr Nan Gilean at the upper, reputedly the last mountain summited in the UK. though I'm not sure how true that really is.

In reply to carybarry: Snow covered ones.

In reply to carybarry: An Teallach and Liathach seem to consistently come tops in best Scottish mountains only. Definitely add to Cuillin to that too imo. Not a clue about England and Wales though Tryfan N was good..

In reply to Trangia:

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).

Foinaven

Beinn Dearg

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.

Cheers, JW
