I'm feeling rather lazy today, so I'll keep it short. I hopped a train to the Highlands this weekend and soloed Ben Nevis, the highest hill in the UK.

I stayed in Fort William, which was scenic:
Image

I hiked on this trail
Image

Above the village of Glen Nevis
Image

Until I could see my route up the mountain
Image

I had to walk around some Scottish stags hanging out below my route
Image

I climbed uphill into a cloud until close calls with these scared me onto the "tourist route"
Image

I made it to the summit alright
Image

Where I checked out the wrecked weather observatory
Image

Descended through worsening weather until I could look across and see my ascent ridge and some distant munros
Image

And Caol on the shores of Loch Linnhe
Image

I returned to Glen Nevis by 3:00 - just before dark
Image

It was great fun, although I really wish Highlanders made better whisky, or at least served the better tasting island-brewed stuff.

In case anyone was curious, here's a photo (liberated from the net) which shows Ben Nevis in its majestic glory. My ascent followed the ridgeline on the right of the photo. The cliff tops I snapped a photo of are pretty apparent in this view.
