Blessed with a both rugged and sandy long coastline, mysterious valleys and mountains, calm waterways and diverse National Parks, Scotland is spoiled for choice when it comes to outdoor adventures and activities.
Hiking Scotlands highest mountain at Ben Nevis
Prepared to take on Scotland‘s iconic mountain? With an altitude of 1,345 meters you will be - quite literally - walking with your head above the clouds as that is what the name Ben Nevis means in its Gaelic origin: “Mountain with its head in the clouds“. But first you have to manage the challenging hike up to its top. But it will be well worth it, not only because of the amazing view that awaits. Physically pushing yourself to the limits en route releases endorphins and will make you feel incredibly proud of yourself. Claim your reward and savour the emotions when finally standing on top of the former volcano where you can still see the light-coloured granite from its last eruption millions of years ago.
