The 'Ben' is the highest mountain in Scotland and the UK rising to an impressive 1345m above sea level. She sits proud above the lively town of Fort William in Lochaber and dominates the skyline when not shrouded by its usual crown of clouds.

Ben Nevis has an interesting history including being a victorian tourist destination with a hotel on the summit.
Today only ruins remain of the hotel but people from around the world still come most days to hike up and stand on the the highest part of the British isles.
The Ben Nevis tour will pick you up from Edinburgh or Glasgow and whisk you up to the highlands where we will have an introductory hike up the lost valley in Glen Coe. (Usually 2-3 hours )
We will then proceed to a camping site just below the mighty Ben, where we will eat heartily and then get a good rest before our big day.
On day two you will hike up the challenging 1345m over 17km (not so easy)
If we are lucky we might get a good view from the top too.
Sadly we cannot guarantee that the summit will be reached due to weather, conditions or fitness.
However we will make sure that we do everything possible to make you have a great experience.
If the weather looks very bad before we leave Edinburgh or Glasgow we are happy to reschedule you on a later trip or refund you.
