The Mountains
Braeriach – 1296m - Super Tough! The third highest mountain in the Britaish Isles, Braeriach is perhaps the finest of the Cairngorms. Reaching its vast summit plateau requires a long approach walk - this remains a truly wild place - whilst all around the plateau are a vast range of dramatic and beautiful corries.

Ben Macdui – 1309m - Really Tough! The second highest mountain in UK, Ben Macdui is in the centre of the arctic-like Cairngorms plateau - a much wilder place than Ben Nevis. Climbed equally frequently from both Deeside and Speyside, the summit is said to be haunted by the wraith-like Old Grey Man!

Ben Nevis – 1345m - The highest mountain in the British Isles – will be tough after six summits!

Helvellyn – 950m - Walk includes Striding Edge – not for the feint hearted!!

Scafell Pike – 978m - The highest mountain in England, will be a night climb!

Scafell – 964m - The Second highest in the England – walking distance from the summit of Scafell Pike

Snowdon 1085m – The highest point in England and Wales . Not to be underestimated, however not too taxing.

Crib y Ddysgl – 1065m – Reached relatively easily from the summit of Snowdon.

Carnedd Llewelyn – 1064m - A very walkable mountain reached by four different ridges. About an hour drive from Snowdon.
