UK’s Six Popular Hills to Visit Time and Again

Here is a list of UK’s six popular hills, not the grandest and certainly not the most remote, which many hikers have already climbed several times and would be happy to return to.

Coniston Water In The Lake District

1 Top o’ Selside

The high point of the sprawling moorland east of Coniston Water offers an amazing view in all the Lakes, over plunging wooded slopes to the lake, with the Old Man and his acolytes beyond.

2 Caer Caradoc

Shropshire has some of England’s best mid-sized hills. One could easily pick Stiperstones or The Long Mynd, but Caer Caradoc carries that ringingly evocative name, and it’s the shapeliest of them all.

3 Whitbarrow Scar

Whitbarrow Scar is the grandest of the limestone ridges in the south-east corner of the Lakes. The ridge is over 5km long and has real substance, even if its highest point is only 215m. Views stretch from the high fells to the shifting glimmer of Morecambe Bay.

4 Holyhead Mountain

Many hikers like Holyhead Mountain, this knotted lump of quartzite, because of the rock-climbing, both the committing fare of the sea-cliffs and the slightly more playful cracks below the summit. Besides, it also offers breath-taking views out to sea and inland to Snowdonia.

5 Pendle Hill

Pendle Hill is another of Lancashire’s finest, and has more history than most. In the red corner, the Pendle Witches; in the blue, George Fox, who had a vision here which encouraged the establishment of the Society of Friends (Quakers).

6 Ingleborough

Ingleborough is the second highest mountain in the Yorkshire Dales, and is one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks. It offers much below ground as well as on the surface.
