Walked up Ben Nevis this summer - wonderful walk with terrific views, marred mainly by the popularity of the walk. I estimated that there were in the region of 100 other walkers on the mountain possibly more. It is an ideal charity walk as it easily accessible but there is a degree of strenuousness to make it a challenge. Us two nearly 60 years olds made it up and down in seven hours, this included twenty minutes for lunch at the top. Take several layers of clothing as we encountered conditions from balmy summer at the start to mid winter on the top. We even had to lend a spare wind proof to one idiot dressed in a football strip with only a back bin liner for protection ! James Kerr
