Completed the walk to the view points. Absolutely awesome! We even got a flurry of snow at a photo moment. Absolutely loved it.

Decided to do this for charity and raise some money for the Autistic Society...It was absolutely amazing! Now I am not the fittest person in the world - far from it...in fact I am surprised I even made it to the top and back! Set out on this trek with a group of people as we were all doing it... More

Me and my mate hiked Ben Nevis on November 16th. It was snowing with powerful winds and visibility was very low. We had a great time reaching the summit we were glad to see some cairns on the top to show the correct path.

Nice place. It is a pity however that when I got to the top in August the summit was surrounded by a thick clouds that prevented to see anything beyond 10 metres :) :) Nevertheless if you have to do a Monro this is the one to do. Be careful with the cold however. At the top it was freeeeeezing.

It's the highest mountain in UK what's not to be inspired about. You don't have to climb it but the views are spectacular if you do

So the question on my lips before starting the hike up the 1340m Ben Nevis mountain was, where do I park my car and was it free. Parking is free and available outside the Ben Nevis Inn (not to be confused with the Ben Nevis Inn on the main pedestrian street). From here, it's a short walk to the gates... More
