WELCOME TO The Top 500 Summits

The Top 500 Summits of Britain and Ireland are listed for the first time. The highest mountain on the list is Ben Nevis in Scotland (4,411 feet) and the lowest is Knockanaffrin in Ireland (2,477 feet). There are 20 summits in England, 21 summits in Wales, 29 summits in Ireland and 430 summits in Scotland. 200 of the summits in Scotland are Munros and 222 are Corbetts, 82 Munros do not qualify as Top 500 Summits because of the 500 foot drop criteria.
