First accented on August 17th, 1771, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the
British Isles. Ben Nevis stands 1,344 metres above sea level, and on a clear day
provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and lochs.
Ben Nevis can be ascended by the 'mountain path', also known as the tourist
route or tourist path. This track was originally called 'The Pony Tack' and was
built in 1883 as an access route to the observatory at the summit of Ben Nevis.
