Planning on tackling the mighty Ben Nevis?
Fort Willy Backpackers is the perfect base for your Ben Nevis adventure and our friendly staff are on hand to help you plan your ascent.
As the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis stands at 1,344 m (4,409ft) and over 100,000 people climb her every year.
There are various different routes that can be taken to the summit but the most popular is the ‘pony track’ which begins in Glen Nevis, just over the hill from our hostel.
Before any of our guests set out on their adventures we recommend that they ensure that they are properly equipped and a check list is available in our information area.
We also ask that all guests fill in one of our Mountain Safety Forms before they head off.
