Ben Nevis August 2022
Ben Nevis Days Out
Climb Britain's highest mountain!
Saturday 27th August 2022
ABOUT THE DAY
At 1,345m above sea level, Ben Nevis is Britain's highest mountain. There are numerous ways to walk (or climb) Ben Nevis. The most straight forward is the so-called donkey track, built to take Victorian ladies up to the summit observatory on the backs of donkeys. I'll be in the area over this Scottish Bank Holiday and depending on the weather, looking at some of the various walking routes up to the summit or around to the North Face.
08:00am Ben Nevis Visitor Centre, Glen Nevis, Fort William, PH33 6PF
