Whats Involved?

This is for anyone who would like to summit the tallest mountain in the UK at 1344m / 4408ft above sea level, it is certainly a challenge to bag for any person with a love of the outdoors!

Ben Nevis weather can change very quickly especially towards the summit, with thick fog and strong winds coming in and visibility at near enough 0 at times, it can be very dangerous, especially with the scree landscape at the summit and 100ft+ cliff edges, it is not a place to get lost or wander too far from the route. For this matter, we advise people who do not have adequate mountain experience to do this with a experienced guide with great navigational skills and you are in the perfect place for that here at OA.

Quick Facts:

Distance: 11 miles/18km

Ascent/Summit: 1344m / 4408ft asl.

 

The views are like no other. As you are at the highest point in the UK, views are not limited. 360 panoramic views of the surrounding Scottish Alps as we like to call it, including the vast Lochs that go on for miles. It is truly astounding!

 

Weather Forecast:Β Long range forecast looks promising, full update will be given during event briefing.
