Climb Ben Nevis
Come join us at atlas mountaineering for a special experience on the UK's highest mountain. Being based in Fort William, The Outdoor Capital of the U.K. at the foot of Ben Nevis, we are available on short notice and have great knowledge of the mountain its self. After we are done scaling the highest Munro, we can stop for a dram of Ben Nevis Whisky to soothe those aching legs.
Ben Nevis (Scottish Gaelic: Beinn Nibheis- the venomous mountain) is the highest mountain in the British Isles, The summit, at 1,344 meters (4,409 ft.) above sea level, features the ruins of an observatory, which was continuously staffed between 1883 and 1904. The western and southern flanks of Ben Nevis rise 1,200 meters (3,900 ft.) in about 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) from the floor of Glen Nevis providing the longest and steepest hill slope in Britain (Murray, 1985) – with the result that the mountain presents an aspect of massive bulk on this side. To the north lies the infamous north face, including corrie leis, This corrie contains the Charles Inglis Clark Memorial Hut (known as the CIC Hut), a private mountain hut located at 680 meters (2,230 ft.) above sea level, owned by the Scottish Mountaineering Club(SMC). The summit of Ben Nevis comprises a large stony plateau of about 40 hectares (100 acres) (Encyclopædia Britannica, 2012). The highest point on the summit is marked with a large concrete Trig point
