Scotland's stunning peak is as beautiful as it is high. You’ll make new friends and unforgettable memories – all while raising vital funds to help the unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens in Cats Protection’s care.
During the trek, you'll be led by mountaineering experts who will guide the group safely up and down the mountain. It is physically demanding, so you will need to have a reasonable level of fitness and be suitably equipped.
Ben Nevis Visitor Centre
The Glen Nevis Visitor Centre car park is located approx. 1.5 miles from the roundabout in Fort William located next to the River Nevis. Follow the road (Belford Road) signposted for Glen Nevis. The car park and Visitor Centre are on the left-hand side of the road as you approach from Fort William. There is parking for approx. 80 cars. The postcode for the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre is: PH33 6PF, however, this will leave you approx 1 mile short of the Visitor Centre itself. The next postcode along that road is PH33 6ST which will take you a little way past the Visitor Centre so keep an eye out for the car park on the left.
When you join Team Cats, you’ll get a first-class experience including:
You'll share your trekking experience with a group of likeminded travellers who might even become friends for life! What's more, by raising funds you'll make an incredible difference to the unwanted and neglected cats that need help.

Cats Protection challenge events are an enormously fun and rewarding way of fundraising. Not only do you get the rush of satisfaction of completing the challenger, but the feeling is doubled as you reach your fundraising target. Paul
From start to finish the adventure has been first class. John
