We are delighted to announce our fabulous fundraising event

Climb Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis (Gaelic translation “Mountain of Heaven”) is the highest point in Scotland and the British Isles, standing at a height of 1343m (roughly 4000ft).  Fort William, on the southern edge of the Great Glen and located on a sea loch, is the nearest town.

Reaching the summit of Ben Nevis is our challenge – it involves a long, arduous uphill trek which will provide you with a wonderful sense of achievement.
