This exciting challenge will see us conquering Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. We'll begin our adventure in the heart of the breathtaking Western Highlands of Scotland at Fort William.

The mountain attracts many trekkers, climbers and mountaineers as the 700-metre high cliffs of the north face are among the highest in the United Kingdom and are one of the principal locations for ice climbing.

The trail to the summit is not technically difficult, but trekking will be strenuous; stamina and determination are a must. The stunning views of the highlands will be with you all the way and provide a fantastic backdrop to this epic weekend adventure.

Don your boots and let's get trekking!

Day 1

We meet at Glasgow Central train station/Glasgow International aiport at approximately 2:00 p.m. for our 3-hour transfer to Fort William - the base of all Ben Nevis ascents - located on the shores of Loch Linnhe.

Upon arrival at our accommodation, we will have an evening meal as a group and a briefing about the weekend challenge ahead.

Day 2

Ben Nevis (1,345m)

After a hearty breakfast, we set off on our challenge! The trek to the summit zig-zags its way through tough terrain and the landscape

becomes ever more remote as we trek higher and higher, leaving the lowlands behind us. Our ascent should take approximately 4 hours, and upon reaching the summit, we will be able to enjoy our packed lunch and take in the stunning views surrounding us. After a group photo, we begin our descent which should take approximately 3 hours.

This evening, we mark our accomplishment with a celebratory dinner and drinks.

Distance trekked – approx. 9 miles

Day 3

Following breakfast, we transfer from Fort William to Glasgow International airport/Glasgow Central train station where the challenge ends. We aim to arrive in Glasgow for about 1:00 p.m. in order for trekkers to continue with their onward journeys.
