You never know where a mountain range could have been. We're ruled by the geology and geomorphology that we've got, but with a few minor shifts in plate tectonics a few hundreds of millions of years ago things could have looked very different today.

And, who knows, there may be mountain ranges lurking in parallel worlds where we least expect them. Ask Philip Pullman - he'll tell you.

The mountains are all from the same shot of the Cuillin range on Skye taken from the West. The rest, except for the one just above, were all taken where they say they were. The last one uses the same image as in the first. The original looked like this, below.
