May and June are fantastic months to be going up Ben Nevis. Long daylight hours, snow on the summit and often good weather mean it is about the best time to experience the highest peak in the UK. There are many reasons to climb Ben Nevis and, since it is such a big challenge, many people like to take the opportunity to raise money for a valuable cause. Nyree and her small team did just this on Saturday with the help of our guide Connor. They all showed great determination on a day with heavy rain and hail showers and they all made it up and back down safely. Well done to them all and please make a contribution to support research into cancer treatments here

Abacus Mountain Guides also assisted a bigger group from the Lease of Life Cancer Support There were about 30 of these guys raising money to help young people with cancer through their treatment. Well done to all of you.
