Climbed Ben Nevis with my Grandson Thomas. We enjoyed the whole walk it was very scenic. When we reached the top what a joy Thomas had. SNOW. We had a short snow ball fight and he had to roll in it. We met other walkers and they took our photo. Extremely Brilliant experience.

A great explore for the adventurer. A long one day hike but well worth it. Beautiful views over lakes and hamlets. Well laid out path, easy to find destination.

I attempted Ben Nevis on a foggy and rainy day. I decided to take the longer, less crowded route (instead of the famous Zig-Zag path). The hike is scenic and extremely nice. You need to scramble a little to reach the ridge which I enjoyed a lot. From there it is a pleasant walk to the top - if you... More

Should you ever get the chance to venture into the Scottish Highlands do not miss out on the grand Ben Nevis.

Luckily the weather was on our side but I really did thoroughly enjoy the hike up Ben Nevis, as did the group of friends I was with. We are of average fitness I would say, we really didn't find it too much of a struggle. The views are stunning and the snow at the top is just magical. Highly recommend.
