Ben Nevis Maps

Ben Nevis, the Gaelic for which is Beinn Nibheis, is the highest mountain in Great Britain. It is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of Scotland, close to the coastal town of Fort William.

Ben Nevis, in common with many other Scottish mountains, it is known to locals as simply The Ben. However, if walkers and climbers from outside Scotland use the term "The Ben" they usually mean Ben Nevis.

Ben Nevis attracts an estimated 100,000 ascents a year, around three-quarters of which are made using the well-constructed Pony Track from Glen Nevis on the south side of the mountain. For climbers and mountaineers the main attraction lies in the 700-metre-high cliffs of the north face: among the highest cliffs in Britain, they harbour some classic scrambles and rock climbs of all difficulties, and are one of the principal locations in the UK for ice climbing.

The summit of Ben Nevis is 1,344 metres (4,406 ft) above sea level.  At the summit of Ben Nevis there are the ruins of an observatory which was permanently staffed between 1883 and 1904.
