Scotland is the United Kingdom’s second largest country. It has over 790 islands, stunning landscapes, and hundreds of frigid mountains. The country’s mountain ranges created numerous closely spaced high peaks. Scotland’s highest points and the majority of the country are covered by ice sheets throughout the winter and sometimes even the summer.
Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Scotland, with a height of 1344 metres. Many of Scotland’s highest peaks (mountains) can be found in mountain ranges, including the Highlands and Cairngorms. Several of the highest mountains in the British Isles can be found in the Highlands, which are shaped by their generally steep terrain.
