The Pony Track
Britains highest mountain, Ben Nevis , stands at 1345m above the sea, giving panoramic views, and is attainable by folks young and old.
The usual ascent of "The Ben" is via The Pony Track (laid to service the Summit Weather Observatory back in 1883), but other exciting alternatives are available.
We have had a lot of experience of Guiding on this mountain, and can give you an insight into it's history, we can even show you the original telecommunications cable and the water butt!

Here is an opportunity to come along with us for a guided walk on Ben Nevis...Every Friday and Sunday from June to September.
The route will be via the Pony Track, the only path to the summit, at a steady pace manageable by all. We will pass on a lot of information about the history of the area, and the reasons behind the old Observatory on the summit.
The journey is expected to take all day, starting from The Ben Nevis Inn at 8.30am. The time for ascent is approx. 4 hours, with us expecting to be back for 5pm.
Take plenty of your favourite foods, some warm layers, waterproof jacket and trousers, and a stout pair of shoes/boots. Walking poles are a very good idea too.
