Standing at 1345m, Ben Nevis is not only Scotland’s, but also Britain’s largest mountain! A must on any adventurer’s bucket list!

This more technical route sees us not only conquering Ben Nevis following the Carn Mor Dearg (CMD) arrete, but also scrambling up one of the lines giving us a grade 1 scramble. It starts from Glen Nevis on the outskirts of the historic town of Fort William, which is abundant with accommodation and parking, giving you the choice of rocking up in the morning or staying the night before.

We follow the Mountain Track taking in the amazing views, whilst crossing a couple of small fords until we reach our Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe, the picturesque loch, where our  path then splits from the normal tourist route and we swing round to the Charles Inglis Clark (CIC) Hut.  Here we have a break taking in the views before embarking on our scramble.

Once up on the arrete, we continue to the summit to take in some of the most spectacular views in Britain!
