Overview

The 1 Day Ben Nevis Expedition from Edinburgh is just what you’ve been looking for!

Are you up for a fantastic challenge?

Imagine the feeling of accomplishment after climbing Britains highest mountain!

Who said it’s not possible to fit this adventure into a single day? Our friends at Pict Expeditions have made it possible. They meticulously planned this epic adventure so you don’t have to worry about anything… except enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Scottish Highlands (and the focus and determination to climb the “Ben”).

Remember “the early bird catches the worm” as you leave Edinburgh at 05:30. Although, you’ll be able to get a few more Zs in on the comfortable minibus journey up north. You’ll aim to start the hike at around 09:30 and be back down again by about 17:30. Then you’ll be due a well-deserved rest as we head back home to round off this unique Ben Nevis Expedition from Edinburgh.

Ben Nevis can throw all sorts of weather at you even in the summer months, so It is best to come prepared.

Here is a list of things to bring on the trip.
  • Day pack (30 – 45 litres is fine)
  • Waterproofs (top and bottoms)
  • A warm top layer (Fleece or puffy jacket)
  • wicking base layer (Merino or synthetic)
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Water bottle (Ideally take 2 litres)
  • Lunch (should be very substantial)
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunblock
  • Trekking boots
  • Headlamp (in Spring and autumn)
  • Walking poles (optional)
  • Spare pair of socks
  • Small kit for blisters
  • Any medication that you may need during the trip.
Please Note

This experience is for 16yrs and over.

Sadly we cannot guarantee that the summit will be reached due to weather, conditions and fitness, however, we will make sure that we do everything possible to make you have a great experience. If the weather looks very bad before we leave Edinburgh we are happy to reschedule you for a later trip or refund you.
