Ben Nevis the UK’s Highest Mountain

July 10 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

The highest mountain within the UK, Ben Nevis. Also known as the Venomous Mountain or the mountain with its head in the clouds is an absolute must do.
This walk will begin from the Ben Nevis Visitor Centre, the ascent will be via the Pony Track also known as the tourist route.
The Pony Track winds it way up through Glen Nevis, and offers fine views over towards Dun Deardail an Iron Age Hill Fort and the Mamores mountain range. Eventually we will gain a bealach and pass Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe or the Half Way Lochan as it has become known. Here we continue until we cross the Red Burn a natural fresh water spring where we can relax and refill our water bottles.
Next we gain the Zig-Zags and gain height very quickly until we reach the 1st of the navigation cairns that will guide us safely across the vast summit plateau of Ben Nevis to the true summit where a raised platform with a trig point stands proud marking the summit.
We will take the time to discover the ruins of the Observatory and its rich history. There are also many other memorials upon the summit and various other points of interest to discover.
Our descent route will be via the Pony Track back to the Ben Nevis Inn for a rewarding refreshment.
