Summits of Ben Nevis & Aonach Beag

Ben Nevis stands at a height of 1344 metres and is the highest peak in Britain.There are a number of routes to the summit including a 'tourist route'. On the north-east ridge stand the ruins of a weather observatory that was manned between 1883 and 1904. Aonach Beag, overlooking the plateau of Ben Alder, is one of four remote Munros between Loch Laggan and Loch Ericht. At 1,234 metres it is the sixth-highest mountain in Britain. It has a rounded summit surrounded by crags and corries on all sides.
