Ben Nevis (1344m) – Highest point of GB / Scotland
A packed weekend: Friday morning I fly into Edinburgh to check out its vibrant city and stunning Castle before heading into the Scottish Highlands. After a good four hour train/bus ride and short night @ the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel in Fort William I set off on my own to conquer Great Britain’s highest peak. As expected, the weather is cold and miserable and it takes me about six hours to scramble up â€śThe Ledge Routeâ€ť ascending CĂ rn MĂ˛r Dearg & along the CMD ArĂŞte. I need two hours to descend the Normal Route. Early Sunday morning I take the bus to Glasgow from where I fly back to Dublin later in the afternoon.
