Charity Walk Course

A fun filled exhilarating weekend based in the Scottish Highlands to conquer Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain standing at the proud height of 4,406ft! This can only be described as a “must do” once in a lifetime achievement and a fantastic way to raise money for a worthy cause.


Start the weekend with a luxury coach trip north for a comfortable two night all inclusive stay at one of our chosen hotels in Fort William – On arrival settle in, enjoy your evening meal and receive your safety presentation and talk from the Ptarmigan team in preparation for your trek the next morning.


The start of the route follows the old pony track from Achintee and crosses the flanks of Meall ant Suidhe to the Halfway Lochan where we’ll break for lunch. From the Halfway Lochan the track makes a series of uphill zigzags over increasingly rocky terrain to lead us onto the extensive summit plateau where remains of the old summit observatory can be found. After the group photo and a bite to eat on the summit we start our descent back into Glen Nevis where you’ll be met by a cheerful reception at the finish! By no means is it all over, after dinner it’s time to party and to celebrate into the wee small hours after receiving your certificate of achievement!
