neutral  Per Bergvall: Sorry Bill - I'm born and raised in Bergen, and there isn't a Peak District. The seven mountains surrounding Bergen aren't even all in Bergen; some are on islands in the surrounding archipelago. It's a must-see - so plan a visit.

  -> I always bow to native-born! And here I was thinking you were an Oslo boy!! And I, coming from New Zealand, wouldn't call any of these "mountains" but I'm careful who I say that to, so you can pretend I didn't say it!! Good luck, Brigid!

Bergen's municipal mountain keeper

Sounds like a mountainous task to me...

I wish i could bring myself to suggest mountain steward, or mountain administrator, without breaking into a fit of giggles, but sorry - I cannot. Feel free to disagree...:-)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hmmm. I was playing with something along the lines of Steward (or Administrator, which would be safer but less creative) of the Bergen Mountains.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  William [Bill] Gray: ... but use "administrator".

  -> Like I said - administering a range of seven mountains must surely be a mountainous task, relatively small (by an Everest scale) though they may individually be.
