Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:

Despite the fact thousands of people safely climb Ben Nevis every year, the mountain should never be under estimated. The wide tourist path can soon be obliterated by snow making route finding very difficult for the inexperienced. Deep and precipitous crags to the north & west await the careless.
