Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis is the UK's highest summit at 1,345m and it towers above Fort William and the surrounding hills of the Mamore's and Grey Coires. The Ben, as it is more commonly know, is one of Lochaber's main tourist attractions with over 150,000 people a year making their way to the top for the opportunity of some of the best views in the country.

The poet John Keets wrote in 1818 "Upon the Top of Nevis Blind in Mist! I look into the Chasms and a shroud Vaporous doth hide them."
