Ben Nevis, Scotland, is the tallest point in the United Kingdom and the British Isles.
The summit reaches 1,345 metres above sea level and is the highest land in any direction for 459 miles.
Ben Nevis can be a challenging climb, being the tallest mountain in Britain.
However, anyone who is in good physical condition can make it to the peak.
With over 1,000 ascents you will be able to find the ideal climb for your abilities.
Outdoor adventurers can’t go wrong with a mountain climb.
Many mountains have tens if not hundreds of access points where you can make your ascent, so you can always find the best route based on your skill set and how long you want your journey to take.
Make sure you pack up enough gear and provisions though, as climbing mountains can be dangerous for the unprepared.
