A. Conditions at the top of Ben Nevis in March and April can be arctic with lots of snow and ice - so I would wait until the the summer.

You will need sturdy walking boots, waterproofs, food and water, map reading skills and a lot of staminia and determination (see What to Wear, What to Take, Navigation Skills for Walkers, Hikers and Ramblers and Contacting the Emergency Services when Walking, Hiking or Rambling
