Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It contains over 790 islands, breathtaking landscapes, and hundreds of cold-weather mountains in the winter. The country’s mountain ranges resulted in a number of tallest mountains that were adjacent to one another. During the winter, and even in the summer, ice sheets cover Scotland’s highest points and the majority of the country.
Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Scotland with a height of 1344 meters. Many of Scotland’s highest peaks (mountains) can be found in mountain ranges including the Highlands and Cairngorms. The Highlands are mostly steep, with some of the highest mountains in the British Isles.
