The peak of Mount Eres was named after a Scottish explorer who led a team of explorers to the peak of the Scottish Peak Range in the 1890s.
The name is derived from Erebu, which means “mountain”.
A survey in 2000 showed that more than 3,000 people visited Mount Erebus every year between 1797 and 1930.
Erebuses are known as a “living monument”, with more than 200 species.
The range covers about 1,300 square kilometres, covering an area of 4,200 square kilometres.
There are no roads on the Erebu, but there is a trail network and there are two trails to the summit.
In July 2019, the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) opened a site on Mount Eremus to study how people and wildlife have changed over time.
The project was led by Dr Mark Blyth from the University of Edinburgh, and includes researchers from the Scottish Natural Heritage Centre and the Scottish Universities School of Natural Sciences.
The survey was funded by the Natural Heritage Trust, the Scottish Government and the European Commission.
In addition to the study, the project also looked at how people interact with the mountains.
Mount Erebs surface features include sandstone and granite formations, rock crevices and gullies, and a high ridge that rises from the sea.
There are a number of areas on the range that can be used as walking trails and the trail network will be used to support the study.
“The project is a good example of how the National Heritage Area programme can help to enhance the lives of local people and to engage the local community in the conservation of Scotland’s natural heritage,” Dr Blythes partner and co-author Dr Jens Todt said.
“We hope this study will encourage people to explore the area, and to explore other natural features in the area to learn about what they know about the natural world.”
Dr Blyths team will be using GPS to monitor the effects of the trail on the landscape and the behaviour of birds.
The project will also look at how the landscape is changed by weather conditions, with a view to better understanding how the range was altered by the changes in temperature.
What you need to know about Mount Eretre: Mounted Mountaineers Mountains can be found all over the world, but they are particularly found in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
These are mountains that can reach an altitude of over 5,000 metres.
They range from the high peaks of the Cairngorman Mountains in Ireland, to the low and steep peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and the higher peaks of Erebonia in Africa.
Erebu in Scotland is one of the largest and most extensive of the range.
It covers around 1,400 square kilometres in the Scottish Highlands, and covers an area covering a total area of more than 4,000 square kilometres – including more than a third of the entire range in Scotland.
More than 2,000 tourists have been killed on the peak in recent years, mostly because of the frequent and extreme weather conditions.
Despite the high number of fatalities, the range is considered to be safe.
About 6,000 to 7,000 visitors are thought to have been on the summit in the 1970s and 1980s, and it is believed that there are some 250 people still on the mountain each year.
Mounting the peak is one way to gain access to the area.
Other people have climbed the peak, including climbers and mountaineers from New Zealand and China.
This year, a team from the Royal Society of Edinburgh has been working on a survey of the Erebos summit for the next few years, as part of a wider project to map the range’s natural features.
You can read more about the project here: The survey team will begin mapping the area this autumn, and will report back in 2020 on the progress of the project.
It will be the second survey of its kind in Scotland, following a survey on Mount Arran in 2009.
