the whole Great Britain

< Previous | Next >
Ben Nevis is the highest point of Scotland and the whole Great Britain.

Do we use THE in this case as I think the phrase is "the whole..." but Great Britain is not used with an article...

Thank you.

    Great Britain does not take "the" on its own, but "the whole (of)" does. It is "whole" to which the article is attached.
