The Nevis Massif - Ben Nevis & The Aonachs Gallery
The UK's highest mountain is 7 miles to the north of Inchree. Many of our guests climb it during their stay.
A small mountain by global standards, (1345 mts.) Ben Nevis nonetheless shouldn't be underestimated. It's exposed, west-coast position subjects it to the full onslaught of Atlantic weather fronts & storms, meaning that harsh conditions can be experienced on it's upper slopes at any time of the year.
Ben Nevis is a mountain of 2 sides - it's southerly aspect appears more sloping & dome-like - although still ringed with giant gullys, butteresses & clefts in it's rocky side. The north side is it's most spectacular - the 600+ metre cliffs of it's north face being the closest feature we have in the UK to an Alpine Face.
