  • UK
  • Do you know where this is?
    • Ben Nevis, Scotland
    • Ben Nevis ( Gaelic : Beinn Nibheis , pronounced [ peˈɲivəʃ ] ) is the highest mountain in the British Isles . It is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of Scotland , close to the town of Fort William .
    • As is common for many Scottish mountains , it is known to locals as simply The Ben . However, if walkers and climbers from outwith Scotland use the term "The Ben", they usually mean Ben Nevis. [1] [2] It attracts an estimated 100,000 ascents a year, [3] around three-quarters of which [4] are made using the well-constructed Pony Track from Glen Nevis on the south side of the mountain. For climbers and mountaineers the main attraction lies in the 700-metre (2,300 ft) high cliffs of the north face; among the highest cliffs in Britain, they harbour some classic scrambles and rock climbs of all difficulties, and are one of the principal locations in the UK for ice climbing .
    • The summit, at 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level, features the ruins of an observatory , which was permanently staffed between 1883 and 1904. The meteorological data collected during this period is still important for understanding Scottish mountain weather. C. T. R. Wilson was inspired to invent the cloud chamber after a period spent working at the observatory.

    • Snowdon, Wales
    • Snowdon ( Welsh : Yr Wyddfa ), is the highest mountain in Wales and is Great Britain 's highest mountain south of the Scottish Highlands . It has been described as "probably the busiest mountain in Britain." [1] It is located in Snowdonia National Park ( Welsh : Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri ), in Gwynedd . The summit is known as Yr Wyddfa (IPA:  [ ɐɾ ' wɪðva ] , Welsh for "the tumulus " [2] ) and lies at an altitude of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) above sea level . In terms of 'absolute height' it is the same height as Table Mountain in South Africa. As the highest peak in Wales, Snowdon is one of three mountains climbed as part of the National Three Peaks Challenge . The English name Snowdon comes from the Saxon "Snow Dun," meaning " snow hill," although the amount of snow on Snowdon in winter has been decreasing recently, having dropped by more than 55% since 1994. [3]
    • Snowdon has one of the wettest climates in Great Britain , receiving an annual average of more than 4,500 millimetres (180 in) of precipitation . [4]

    • The Lake District , also known as The Lakes or Lakeland , is a rural area in North West England . A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes and its mountains (or fells ), and its associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the Lake Poets .
    • There have been people in the Lake District since the end of the last ice age. There are traces of prehistoric and medieval field systems, archaeological monuments such as stone circles, Roman roads and forts and the remains of the mining, gunpowder and wood-processing industries.
