Ben Nevis

In September, eighteen hardy souls travelled up to Fort William to scale our nation’s highest peak – Ben Nevis. The group arrived the night before the hike to enjoy some social time together before retiring to our various Hostels, campsites and B n B’s to rest up for the challenge ahead. After a good night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, we gathered at the foot of the mountain for a group photo before setting off on the trek. The mountain’s formidable reputation didn’t faze us and Ben Nevis soon turned in to “BEG” Nevis as we made excellent time on our ascent. The beautiful clear weather meant magnificent views which diverted attention away from any sore feet and it wasn’t long before we were enjoying our lunch at the summit. The fog was the enemy on top and after a chilly packed lunch it was time to descend again and before long the incredible panoramic vistas returned. The group made it safely back down to the bottom before heading to the Ben Nevis Bar in town for a well-earned refreshment. We were joined on the hike by our friend from India and cameraman Divvy. Having spoken to him weeks after the trek, he informed us that he had thought about his adventure “every day since”. A day to cherish indeed.
