Ben Nevis is the UK's highest mountain at 1,344m and it towers above Fort William and the surrounding hills. It is one of the areas main tourist attractions with over 150,000 people a year making their way to the top for some of the best views in the country, if their lucky. The easiest route, the 'Tourist path' starts just above sea level and climbs around the Southern flanks of Meall an t-shiude to the half way lochain. From here it crosses the Red burn and then zig-zags it way up the upper part of the mountain to reach the plateau. It's not over there though, a short walk from the start of the plateau and you'll reach the summit, with it's trig point and the observatory ruins.
The other side of the mountain, 'the North face' has some of the largest cliffs in Britian and some of the longest rock and ice routes. There is something for everyone, from easy scrambling such as Ledge route, through some of the harder classics such as Tower ridge and North East Buttress right up to the hardest summer and winter climbs in Britian.
So whether you want to walk your way to the top of the UK or Climb it by it's magnificant North face, 'the Ben' has something to offer everyone.
