Imagine feeling alone and isolated, with no one to talk to day after day. This is the harsh reality for many older people in Scotland today.

Help us change that by taking on this challenge which takes you through the Western Highlands in order to conquer the highest peak in Britan set at 1,343m above sea level. 

The trail to the summit is technically easy, but trekking Ben Nevis is a challenge – stamina and determination are a must! The stunning views of the highlands will be with us all the way and provide a fantastic backdrop to one of the most sought after charity challenges in the UK! Celebrate your fantastic achievement in Fort William once you have completed the challenge.
