The Mountains

General information:
Below is the list of independent mountains, sorted by various categories. Names and heights originate from Statens Kartverk (M711)/Norgesglasset (20m contours) or Økonomisk Kartverk (part of Norgesglasset, 5m contours). The height from Ø.K. override the M711 heights. A number of mountains may have a point higher than the M711 trig. point marked on the maps. Note also that if the high point of a mountain lies within another kommune, the mountain is listed under that specific kommune. If a mountain high point is shared by two kommuner, the mountain is listed under both kommuner. The asterix (*) means that the high point is (exactly) found on a kommune border.

Independent Mountains (elevation >= 300m, primary factor >= 100m) 


High Tops (elevation >= 300m, primary factor >= 90m)  


Low Tops (elevation < 300m, primary factor >= 100m)  

(The below table is sorted by height)

Rank Name Height Loc. PF Saddle
Parent M711 Map
1. Førdesveten 287m 32 V 284496 6681162 271m 32 V 282601 6690159 Liatårnet 1115-II Austevoll
2. Sangoltshornet 186m 32 V 284922 6685626 123m 32 V 285069 6684011 Førdesveten 1115-I Bergen

Name: Names are derived from the M711 maps. Names in quotes (") are derived from Økonomisk Kartverk (ØK)
Height: I have chosen to let ØK heights override M711 heights
Loc: UTM co-ordinates for the high point or the saddle defining the primary factor. These co-oordinates are approximate.
PF: The mountain's primary factor. Explained in detail here.
Parent: A higher mountain that defines the mountain's primary factor. Not valid when there are choices. Island high points never has a parent as the sea always will define the primary factor.
Map: The M711 map where the mountain's high point is located.
