Route NamePhotoDistanceDescription
Ben Nevis Mountain Track11 miles (17 km)Follow the Ben Nevis Mountain Track (or Tourist Route) up Britain's highest mountain on this spectacular walk. The walk begins in the Glen Nevis visitor centre car park in the town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands. The visitor centre has a wealth of advice and information and is well worth visiting particularly if you are not an experience hill climber. This route is the most straightforward path up the mountain but is still strenuous with the upper section particularly rough and stony. As such you should prepare properly for the walk with good walking boots, extra clothing and plenty of food and water. It usually takes 7-10 hours for the ascent and descent so it is best attempted in the summer months when there is plenty of daylight. View Full Details>>
