The Hospice has joined forces with Bobby McGuane of Beyond Boundaries once again, to bring to you this amazing bespoke hospice challenge event. He will lead the trek along with a qualified mountain leader, and they will be with you every step of the way as you triumph over the UK’s highest summit.
Towering above the town of Fort William deep in the highlands of Scotland, Ben Nevis is an incredible mountain and the goal of many hill-walkers.
Standing at 1,345m high, it will take a full day (Saturday) to walk to the summit and back – and what a better way to do it than as part of a supportive team and with experienced leaders at the helm. The total distance is just under 11 miles, with around 1,350 metres of ascent and descent.
Views from the summit are simply breath-taking. You’ll see over the islands of the Hebrides, the ocean and all around are peaks as the eye can see.
