Hills and Mountains Quiz – The answers

Hello again people and pooches. Joe the Cocker here. While you humans are still under pandemic restrictions we thought that we would do a little pictorial quiz. Its just for fun to remind you of what we are missing. Below are the answers to the quiz questions. Thank you for having a go!

1 This is the view from near to the summit of Conic Hill near Balmaha and overlooking Loch Lomond. It is the first incline on the West Highland Way if you are travelling from south to north. Joe took it in his stride while I puffed and panted with an overweight rucksack.

2 We were in Wales this time. We were walking in Snowdonia below the Glyderau. Joe had spotted a gull flying above Llyn Idwal in the beautiful Cwm Idwal.

3 This is the trig point on Skiddaw in the Lake District on a cold and windy day in March

4 A chilly day almost at the summit of Moel Siabod in Snowdonia. A beautiful day and Joe loved the snow.

5 Another chilly day on the summit of Moel Famau. A beautiful day until the clouds came down while we were on the summit. A popular Clwydian hill.

6 This hilltop can be seen from a Llangollen, in the valley. The summit of the hill has Castell Dinas Bran ruins proudly sat on top.

7 We were on the Great Ridge in the Peak District near Castleton. Mam Tor was wet and windy on the day but the view over Edale make it well worthwhile.

8 We were on the summit of Blencathra in the Lake District on this occasion. There was a fair amount of snow cover on the ridge but clear on the summit.

9 We weren’t on the top of the mountains but, heading towards the Glyderau overlooking Llyn Idwal again. Joe was admiring the stunning scenery while I had a coffee break.

10 Possibly the hardest one to identify but this hilltop is Dinas Emrys near Llyn Gwynant. There is plenty of myth and legend to discover in the area.

How did you do? Did you enjoy having a go? We will do some more if the feedback shows an amount of interest. Till next time.
