Ben Nevis is climed year around but the winter time is only for experienced mountaineers, people still die on the mountain. In the summertime it is one of the most popular hikes in Scotland, since it is the highest peak of the UK.

Where and Tips

Fort William, Scotland
United Kingdom

Leaving Fort William in the early morning will avoid the crowds in the holiday season. There is a well marked path until the top. Lucky for us there were no clouds which seems to be exceptional. Leaving the visitor center just outside of Fort William, the path is an easy climb. Halfway the parth becomes more difficult. Just under the top there is a small valley where, even is summer, some snow is still present. The top gives a nice view over Scotland, weather permiting. If the weather is a spoiler, there are plenty of alternative hikes around the area of Fort William.
