Our transfer to Ben Nevis will take us along the shores of Loch Lomond and through Glen Coe before arriving in Fort William for lunch, where you will have time to buy any last minute supplies for your 3 Peaks Challenge.

On arrival in Glen Nevis you will be given a safety briefing and kit check by your leader before beginning your 3 Peaks challenge at approximately 3pm/4pm, starting late afternoon helps us to avoid traffic and walking in the dark on both Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike.

Itinerary suggestions
Please note timings are approximate and depend greatly on the group. All times are set trying avoid walking in dark as this will slow the group down, especially in poor weather, with large groups we find that the best option is start your 24hrs at the base of Ben Nevis and finish your 24hrs on the summit of Snowdon, this does not mean that fast groups cannot reach the base of Snowdon within the 24hr period.
