I enjoyed the view, but I got a little bit scared because it was so slippy. The visistor centre staff were very informative.

Mysterious because of clouds. Beautiful scenery and different shades of green. Very remote area. Definitely needed a driver or excellent GPS to get around this area. We were there in June and the clouds came in and out. Rained part of the time.

Take your time and enjoy the views. Be prepared with the right clothing, footwear, food, water and keep to the track and you'll be fine. We made it up in just over 3 hours and down in 2.5 hours. Lots of celebrations at the top and bottom!!!

I am not easily impressed by natural things being more of a 'townie' but I would have to say I can only describe it as stunning. One of the best sights I have ever seen, needs to be seen to be believed

Impressive and imposing mountain. Did take seven and a half hours to get up and down, but well worth it.

But not for the faint hearted,very tough physically if you go all the way to the top, but views are spectacular even half way up. Not for anyone with walking difficulties.

My son and i decided to do this for the second time!. The first time we did it was six or seven years ago as part of a large group when he was only about eleven and it took about nine hours!! This time we decided to have an early start and started walking before 4.30am, It was a decision... More

We didnt climb ben nevis have two small children but we did have a wander over the river and a little walk up to the ben nevis inn, whih is also lovely. The only thing I found odd was the fact you had to pay for parking at the bottom?
