Course Overview

Ben Nevis is the highest Munro and mountain in the UK, and a major winter challenge.

This day is a guided day walk up the Mountain track (also known as the pony track or the tourist path) from a start point in Glen Nevis. Much of the upper mountain would be under snow, and the path may not be visible – so careful navigation is normally required.

The walk is 7.5km to the top, so a round trip of 15km. Ascent during the day of over 1300m. Winter equipment will need to be hired – winter boots, crampons and an axe. Instruction on their use will, of course, be part of the day.

An absolute must for any keen winter hill walker, or winter outdoor enthusiast, who has a day spare.
