How well do you know your mountains? Try our Christmas Quiz and win a signed book

By Natalie Simpson

Natalie has created a Christmas Quiz for you to have a go at - simply say what you see! The pictures all contain clues to mountains - some easy and some, quite frankly, fiendish.

Questions 1-3 are on mountains of the Lake District, 4-6 are on UK mountains, 7-9 are European mountains and 10-12 are world mountains.

Email your answers to to be in with a chance of winning a signed Cicerone guidebook of your choice (depending on author availability). Please do not reveal your answers on facebook or twitter - we want everyone to be able to have a go (without cheating).

Good luck!
