About the Challenge
Ben Nevis (Gaelic translation ‘Mountain of Heaven’) is the highest point in Scotland and the British Isles, standing at the lofty height of 1343m (roughly 40,00ft). Reaching the summit of this mountain is a long, arduous uphill trek. Undertaking it at night is an unforgettable and arduous challenge, with our way lit only by the moon and our torches. We set off just after sunset and should be at the summit to experience the sunrise. As we descend, we can see the spectacular landscapes open up before us as the day grows lighter. We celebrate our huge achievement with a slap-up breakfast! Dates & Prices

My friend and I are in our 60's and had been training well with a variety of terrain but nothing prepares you for The Ben especially overnight when your body begins to tire and wonders what on earth is going on. The team was always round the next corner in their easy to see reflective jackets, a real comfort in the dark of the mountain, always cheery and encouraging us on. We both struggled, one at the bottom and the other nearing the top but through each others support and sheer determination and the calm, confident, friendly chats at various points with the team we battled through and were thrilled to complete our challenge. I can't thank your team enough. WE DID IT, in 9 hours and feel extremely proud of ourselves but if it hadn't been for your amazing staff supporting us all I am sure a lot more walkers would have turned back. You really are amazing and thank you so much for just being there for all of us.
