About Ben Nevis by night – Dusk to Dawn

Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK stands at 4,000ft high and is located in the Western Highlands of Scotland. This is a magnificent mountain with 360 degrees of stunning scenery. It is estimated that more than 150,000 people climb ‘The Ben’, as it is known locally, each year. Our trail to the summit is technically easy, but trekking Ben Nevis is a challenge – stamina and determination are a must!

Guided by an experienced mountain leader from Lost Earth Adventures at the lofty height of 1343m (roughly 4000ft), You will be at the highest point in the whole of the United Kingdom. ‘The walk usually takes 7-9 hours and is 16.5 Km long. From the summit, the panorama stretches out for up to 120 miles in all directions; making the climb well worth the effort!’

You’ll trek through the night to the summit of the UK’s tallest mountain. Once you have taken in your surroundings you’ll make your way down the mountain as the sun rises.
