What can I say about Ben Nevis that hasn't already been said? Ok, it's really big, leave early in the morning, check the weather before you go and if it's autumn ring the Hill Phone before you set off to ensure you don't end up in the path of the Dear cull. Don't forget to wear two apirs of socks and have spare socks and compede plasters in your rucksack along with your all weather waterproofs as the chances are you will experience all weathers on your walk up the mountain.
The tourist trail is reasonably comfortable and well maintained, you will still need good walking boots, layers of clothing as the temperature can vary considerably and don't forget your binoculars. The wild life and views are spectacular. It's a hard climb but once you reach the top it's so well worth it, it feeld increadible. Have a great climb.
The ski-ing is pretty good too but the best ski lift is over on Aonach Mor.
