For experienced, fit mountain walkers who do not mind easy scrambling but are not climbers, this is the finest way to climb Ben Nevis. This is a truly spectacular route incorporating two Munros. It will live long in the memory and does true justice to the mountain.

Terrain

Good mountain paths for much of the route; pathless section on descent with burn crossing. The traverse of the arete is a long but easy scramble.
