Ben Nevis Trek
Touch the clouds atop Britain’s highest peak
Join us this September for a challenge you’ll remember forever.
Date: 24 – 26 June 2016 – This date is now fully booked
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 a real experience to check off of any bucket list.
Whether you’re a seasoned outdoors person or an aspiring hiker 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!

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
