The Top 500 Summits: A Lifetime of Hillwalking
by Barry K. Smith
The Top 500 Summits are the highest 500 mountains in the UK and Ireland with a 500 foot drop on every side. They are listed for the first time in this book. The highest summit on the list is Ben Nevis (4,411ft); the lowest summit on the list is Knockanaffrin in Ireland (2,477ft). Thousands of people have climbed one or more of these summits – very few have climbed them all.
This book is my personal journey over all 500 summits, spanning a period of over fifty years. It is not intended to be a guidebook. It lists the summits in Britain and Ireland and how anyone can climb them, if they are daft enough to keep going for a lifetime.
