Ben Nevis Guided Group Hike in Scotland

Enjoy a guided group hike in Ben Nevis, Scotland.

The Mountain Track, or Pony Track, is the most popular route to the summit of Ben Nevis but should still not be underestimated. The path winds it’s way up from Glen Nevis and it takes approximately four hours to get to the top. As the path is loose and rocky we allow for the same amount of time to come back down.
Reaching the summit of Ben Nevis is achievable for most people but you will need good levels of fitness and stamina, and be prepared for a full day out in the mountains.
From the start of May until the end of September we run Ben Nevis Group Walks up the Mountain Track every Wednesday and Sunday.

What to expect

Ben Nevis Guided Group Hike in Scotland: Itinerary

Your guide will meet you outside the Ben Nevis Inn at 8.30am and the walk will start from there. Expect a full day out on the mountain, getting back down at about 4.30pm. The Ben Nevis Inn is a great place for a celebratory drink!
Not only is Ben Nevis the highest point in the UK but it is home to some of the rarest plants in the UK and has always played a central role in the development of mountaineering across the world. Don't just climb Ben Nevis, discover more as you learn all about its history, geology, flora and fauna!
There are no toilets on Ben Nevis. Make sure you go before you start the walk. There are places for a pee which are reasonably discrete. Ask you guide to point them out. It is very important to drink and stay hydrated, this is a bigger concern that where to go for a pee.
Everything we carry up must be carried back down. All food wrappers, banana skins, orange peel and plastic bottles must be carried down with us. You might like to take a small bag to collect your rubbish in to help carry it down.
There can be snow patches on the route until July or August and the summit is regularly 9C colder than at sea level. Even if it is warm and dry at the start, it is normally cold and wet on top and you will need warm clothes, waterproofs, hat and gloves.
If you are not used to walking up mountains, it is quite hard to know what to wear and what to carry with you on your climb up Ben Nevis. The main point to remember is that it is a lot colder, windier and wetter on the summit than it is in the glen at the start of the walk.
You might start out in a light shirt but on top it is often 10C colder, wet and windy so you will need to wear a lot more clothing, a hat and gloves. As you come down again, you will probably need to take off all your layers again!
