The Ben Nevis Summer Ascent in support of Blood Cancer UK is a challenge to trek to the summit, and back, of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain which stands at 1,344m high and is located in the Western Highlands of Scotland.  This is a magnificent mountain with 360 degrees of stunning scenery.

  • Height gain – 1,329m (4,359ft)
  • Summit – 1,344m (4,408ft)
  • 1 days’ guiding by an experienced mountain leader on Ben Nevis
  • We run this trip between May and October, however you can do the ‘Ben’ in winter to experience some winter mountaineering, see Ben Nevis – Winter
  • Many years’ experience on Ben Nevis – we also adhere to the mountain code and work with the John Muir Trust to ensure the conservation of ‘The Ben’

About & Details

Standing on top of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, gives an amazing sense of achievement.  If the weather is kind, the views from the summit, and even from half way up, are quite stunning.  On a good day, you can see all the way to the majestic rock spires of The Isle of Skye and looking the other way, down Loch Linnhe to the Irish Sea.  At 1344m above sea level it is not uncommon to find over 2m of snow on the summit in March.  Weather conditions permit us to run this course from May to October.  Please enquire should you wish to do a winter version (Dec – Apr).
