Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Britain. This route is the standard, so-called Tourist Route up the mountain. It is straightforward, if strenuous, by hillwalking standards, but the less experienced should read all the precautions.Terrain
Steep path throughout. Once past the Red Burn the route crosses boulders and scree. The upper sections are often snow covered and losing the line of the path could lead onto dangerous terrain - navigational skills are needed. NB. as with any mountain walk, ANY ASCENT WHEN SNOW IS LYING ON THE PATH REQUIRES WINTER EQUIPMENT AND SKILLS.
- Grade: 3
- Distance: 17km
