Located in the Western region of the Grampian Mountains of Scotland, Ben Nevis stands at over 1,300 meters above sea level. The natural monument attracts more than 100,000 climbers each year, thanks to its prominence over the stunning Scottish Highlands and its significance as the tallest mountain in the British Isles. The mountain is popular amongst both amateur and experienced climbers, thanks to its multiple route options.
