Why not join us on a guided walk to the summit of Ben Nevis in 2017?
Ben Nevis is 1344m high, the highest mountain in the UK. We will follow the mountain track from the Ben Nevis Inn www.ben-nevis-inn.co.uk close to sea level and climb all the way up to come all the way back down the same way. We climb around the side of a smaller hill before reaching the halfway lochan (which isn;t actually quite half way) then onto the zig zags which will take us to the summit plateau. We then need to walk another kilometre before reaching the summit. It takes around 4 – 5 hours to reach the summit and about 3-4 to come down. The views can be spectacular towards Mull, Skye, Rhum, Cairngorms and Glencoe. The North face of the mountain has magnificent climbing crags, however we do not see these unless there is good visibility on the summit.
You can walk at a leisurely pace and in a group with a maximum of 12 people, or a minimum of 4. Alternatively please contact us for a private guiding day.
