"I'd describe it as the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but definitely the most exhilarating. I’ve got the buzz for it now, here's to the next one!" Nicola James
Summit of Ben Nevis at midnight takes approx 5-6 hours; descent approx 2-4 hours.
Day 1: Arrive Scotland
We meet at the start point and enjoy a good meal for maximum energy. We begin our challenge at sunset. The ascent kicks off quite steeply, but then settles into a steadier uphill gradient. As our path changes from green vegetation to stony, barren slopes, we tackle the famous ‘zig-zags’. As dawn approaches we can see the cairn that marks the summit – it's an exciting sight! We are currently the highest people in Britain!
Day 2: Descent
In good visibility we can enjoy views over Glen Nevis, Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil. The descent will be relatively speedy, and it's time for a celebration breakfast at the end. We leave Fort William and return to Glasgow where the challenge ends.
