Ben Nevis, Inverness-shire, from Banavie

Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles. In Scottish Gaelic its name is Beinn Nibheis meaning either "venomous mountain" or "cloud-headed mountain". Ben Nevis stands at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of Inverness-shire, close to the town of Fort William.

The mountain attracts an estimated 100,000 ascents a year. The summit, at 4,409 feet above sea level, features the ruins of an observatory, permanently staffed between 1883 and 1904. (Read more)
