and it's not Ben Nevis...

 

 

Or, is it?

Within the same article they claim that Mt Hope is the UKs highest peak, whist at the same time claiming that Ben Nevis is the tallest within the UK. Typical BBC doublespeak.

Mount Hope is the UK's Highest Peak. 

Ben Nevis is Great Britain's highest peak.. also the highest peak in the British Isles.

 

The UK  . ( legal term) constitutes the Countries of Scotland, and England, the Principality of Wales and the Province of Northern Ireland AND all other dependent Territories. etc etc....... It includes loasda a wee rocks and enclaves around the world as well as some of Antarctica...

Hence Mount Hope is in ''other dependent Territories'' so is the Highest in the UK...

and Ben Nevis is the Highest in Great Britain, and  the British Isles

.

It's immaterial anyway as you'll never get to Mt Hope due to the impenetrable ice wall...

In that case, how do we know it's there?

It doesn't. It's just another invention by the BBC to try to belittle Scotland's achievements.

I will tell you what used to fuck me off. The description of Snowdon as the highest mountain in England and Wales. Why stop at England? Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and Belgium. Theres a lot of countries don't know that Snowdon is their highest point.
