Many years I have been hiking and scrambling in and around the hills and mountains of the UK. I run a small walking group which meets regularly. I am trying to make a dent in the munro list!! I just enjoy being outdoors when ever I can :)

comment Is there a definitive list of the tallest mountains in the world that require little or no mountaineering experience?
True Scotland mountains are at a lower altitude.. but in Winter trust me they can be quite a bit fun :) I know for a fact that you can hike to the top of Aconcagua in the Andes which is at 6962m! although I suspect a significant amount of altitude training would be needed..

Trust me you wouldn't want to sleep in a hammock in some of the UK wild areas..

I agree with @TimothyStrimple - why replicate the information here if this captures what he is asking for?
