Climbing Ben Nevis is not for the faint hearted. The mountain at 4406 ft (1344 meters) does however offer spectacular views weather permitting. Even on a hot summer day there will be snow at the top! For the less energetic, you drive or walk into Glen Nevis which will provide dramatic views of the mountain. The gorge at the east end of the Glen gives access to the 100ft high waterfall at Steall Meadows.
