Arnaud L Climb Ben Nevis Challenge

Contributorgold Arnaud L I climbed Ben Nevis this week-end, really nice walk. Nice to get at the top of the highest mountain in UK. Easy walk, which seemed to be fine for kids too - A lot of families there. It takes between 4 and 6 hours by the mountain track. I'll add useful information soon.
