Dream Peaks

If you could choose one UK peak to climb once the clocks have spun back and the snows have started to retreat from the mountains, what would it be? Spring’s almost here, so we’ve gathered a team of experts to reveal the summits they most want to stand on once winter releases its grip.

With its milder temperatures, longer daylight hours and the return of green to a grey world, this is a fabulous time to head to the hills.

A walk on the wild side

Add a dusting of snow to the Lake District’s Newlands Round for a high-level horseshoe that appeals to man and beast alike.

It felt incredible that two wild creatures would go to the effort of completing a full circuit of Newlands

“The summit view from Suilven is rightly listed amongst the finest in the Highlands.

The sounds of silence

Being in the mountains is an immersive, sensory experience, and nowhere is this felt more keenly than the quiet corner of the Cairngorms occupied by Beinn a’ Ghlo.

The only sound to be heard... was the regular crunch-crunch of boots on the firm gravel


England’s arctic plateau

Mastering the art of winter navigation requires skill, confidence and experience, and Trail knows the perfect playground to practice.

The curious thing about Kinder Scout is nobody knows where the summit is
