Ben Nevis on a clear day

I spent 6 days completing the West Highland Way for the third time. On the seventh day, I ascended Ben Nevis for the second time. It took me 6 hours in total from Glen Nevis campsite, following the mountain path route described here.

The weather had miraculously been great all week, perfect conditions for going up Ben Nevis for some clear views at the top. Much better than my previous visit in 2011 when it rained most of the way up and there was zero visibility at the top.

I spent the last hour and a half descending in darkness, good job I took the head torch!
It felt cool to be one of the torches coming down the hill instead of just the usual spectator watching from the Glen.
