Date: 29 June – 1 July 2018

Date: 28 – 30 September 2018

Standing vigil high above the town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, the infamous Ben Nevis awaits those prepared to pursue its ancient pinnacle in aid of Pilgrims. Its skyward slopes zigzag high into the clouds revealing spectacular panoramic views towards the Scottish coastline far below. At 1,344 metres (4,409ft) above sea level, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the entire British Isles and the experience of reaching its summit is a must for any bucket list.

Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or just looking for your next big challenge, the sense of achievement will be the same. Knowing that you have raised vital funds towards the care of thousands of people living with a life-limiting illness across east Kent will leave you smiling all the way down to your dinner!

  • Accommodation on day 1 and 2 of the challenge
  • All meals from evening on day 1 through to breakfast on day 3

Your weekend’s itinerary

Day 1: You’ll arrive at Glasgow Central Train Station/Glasgow International Airport and meet up with the other members of your group for a 3 hour transfer to Fort William. Here you will enjoy a hearty evening meal and briefing before hitting the hay.

Day 2: Trek day! You’ll head out for the summit of Ben Nevis (1,344m) and back down again; a total distance of approx. 10 miles.

Day 3: After a well deserved night’s sleep, you’ll transfer from Fort William back to Glasgow for your onward journey home.

It was the most amazing feeling in the world and 21 years on I have never forgotten that feeling. The camaraderie, bonding, laughs, support and care that we all experienced on that climb was out of this world and it completely changed my view of human nature and life. Karen – Pilgrims Supporter
