As the summer begins, we’ve been told the UK has a golden age of mountain ranges, with the vast majority of them having been discovered in the last 50 years.
But how exactly do you know if your favourite ranges are the best?
That’s the question we asked a team of British mountain guides who were commissioned to create a list of the country’s best and worst mountain ranges.
In doing so, they discovered the list was a little over the top.
Here are the top 10 best mountain ranges and the worst in the world, based on a comprehensive list of over 3,000 peaks.1.
