Ben Nevis (Beinn Nibheis) is the highest Munro standing at 4413 feet or 1345 metres above sea level and is also the highest mountain in the British Isles. An estimated 150,000 people visit the area and ascend it each year making it one of the most visited attractions in the area. The most popular route is the "Pony Track" also know as the Tourist Route and most people are able to attempt this as it zig zags up the mountain so is not too steep. It should be noted however that the descent can be relatively arduous for inexperienced walkers.
For experienced hillwalkers who want more of a challenge, a more difficult route starts at Torlundy, a few miles north east of Fort William.
