Ben Nevis Day Walk – Scotland

June 18, 2015

Ben Nevis logo

The Ben Nevis Day Walk is a fully-guided hike to the summit of Britain’s highest mountain.

 

We assemble at the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre car park at 0900 am for a safety brief and kit check before commencing the walk at around 0930 am.

 

As we start up the rocky Ben Nevis path the climb begins in earnest as we cross footbridges and rocky sections to reach the Red Burn, after which the path climbs in a series of long winding zig-zags before reaching the summit plateau.  On the plateau the route takes us through a mass of stones and cairns.

 

The final part of our climb takes us to the summit proper, marked by an Ordnance Survey trig point, cairns, an emergency shelter and the ruins of an observatory.

 

If the weather permits, we take a short break on the summit before retracing our steps back to the Visitor Centre below. We should finish around 4:30 to 5:30 pm

 

All timings are approximate and may vary.
