We the start day meeting at the Ben Nevis Inn. Here we will meet and greet, discussing the kit and weather for the day. The journey starts, with a gentle introduction to the Pony Track, built in 1883, with plenty of history about the area along the way. Ascending steadily, we reach half way up approximately 2 hours into the journey, with a good opportunity to feed, and refill water bottles at the Red Burn.
Now we start to ascend the famous Zig Zags, gaining height rapidly, along with the extending views across Ardnamurchan to the Great Glen. The plateau will be reached, followed by a steady walk to the summit, arriving in about 4 hours from the start.
There is plenty to see on the summit whilst we eat (Weather allowing). The ruins of the Weather Observatory (1883-1904), The old "Hotel", and the iron frame that held Clement Wragge's observation instruments which pre dates the Observatory. If the weather allows, we can see the rest of Scotland...Mountains in every direction.
We will descend the same path back to The Ben Nevis Inn, returning at approximately 5pm.
We will take a series of photographs to document your day, which will become available to you as part of our service.

I have a strong background in the UK Mountains, having lived and worked in The Lake District and Mountain Guiding in The Scottish Highlands, using my Winter Mountain Leader Qualification extensively.

We had a great time and Rich really helped us get up and down safely and comfortably. We couldn’t have done it without him!

Our hike with Richard was good fun despite the cold & wet conditions! Richard was very knowledgable and told us lots of interesting things about Ben Nevis, and took lots of photos for us during the day too which was great. A great day we’ll always remember!

We went up the mountain with Stuart, who was very experienced and walks up Ben Nevis often. He gave a helpful overview of what the walk would be like, with useful breakdowns going up saying how far through we’d made it, and made good conversation with everyone in the group. He gave interesting bits of information about the local area, wildlife, and plants, and practical walking advice. He also planned regular stops for food, drink, and adding or removing layers of clothing. Despite the poor weather, we had an enjoyable trip. As someone who is new to hill walking, being guided up Ben Nevis boosted my confidence and made the trip enjoyable. However, the path is clearly marked and easily manageable for those with more outdoor experience.

Reach was absolutely amazing! He’s not only full of knowledge and experience but also fun and interesting to be around. I thoroughly enjoyed our hike to Ben Nevis with Reach who is very attentive to everyone in his group. Thank you Richard for starting me on the map reading track! :D Can’t wait to get my hands on some maps to practice and feel more confident when planing next loan adventures. Great guide and a mentor!
