Don't blame you with the weather. Was blowing a real storm when we was there. Have a great tripNo. On the advice of poppycamper we did the north face path on Saturday. Lovely walk and much quieter than the Ben. 14 miles . I have done Ben Nevis previously and was put off by the forecast
Yesterday I walked up to Dun Deardail fort. Fantastic views. Just over an hour from the site.
Totally agree only once. It's a challenge I found coming down the hardest partStayed at that site a few years ago when we did Ben Nevis. It was April temperature in the 20's had to go over quite a bit if snow towards the top, beautiful clear day.
Grueling walk not one I would want to do again.
