A Mountain in Wales is defined as being any high point over 610m (2000ft) above mean sea-level with at least 30m (approx 100ft) of 'prominence' or 'ascent' on all sides.

Welsh mountains are also sometimes known by the acronym Hewitt which stands for Hill in England, Wales or Ireland over Two Thousand feet.

There are currently 526 Mountains (or Hewitts)
- 180 in England, 137 in Wales and 209 in Ireland.

Mountains in Scotland using the same criteria (i.e. 30m of 'prominence') are commonly known as Munro Tops/Murdos, Corbett Tops and Graham Tops.
