Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis - H4H Jubilee Challenge 2012

Help for Heroes is honoured to be chosen as one of only four charities to take part in The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Beacons on Monday 4th June.
As part of the celebrations Help for Heroes are delighted to introduce the H4H Jubilee Challenge - a trek to light a beacon at the summit of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak (1344m).

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles. As is common for many Scottish mountains, it is known both to locals and visitors as simply the Ben. It is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William, where the challenge begins.

The trek will follow the well-constructed 1883 Pony Track from Glen Nevis on the south side of the mountain. The initial steep climb gives way to a more moderate incline, and the zig-zag route means the path is not unusually steep. Upon reaching the flat summit of we will prepare to light a beacon at 2230 to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubliee, before descending in the darkness of the Scottish Highlands.
