Introduction


This table lists all the mountains above 500 metres in the Cambrian Mountains. Although the definition of a mountain in Britain is a peak over 2000 feet (610m) in height, the Cambrian Mountains are mostly made up of upland plateau between 400 and 600 metres and therefore any list of peaks would look a bit thin and would not be truly representative of the range. Therefore I have also listed the larger hills above 500 metres, all peaks have a prominence of at least 30 metres.

The table is interactive; click on the name of the mounatain to go to its SP Mountain/Rock page (if one exists) and click on the grid reference to go to an Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map of the immediate area.
