Rick and his Faily on The Pony Track Ben Nevi

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!
