Lochaber and the West

The western highlands provide a broad range of mountaineering, primarily focusing on Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis and nearby Glencoe. Together with a wide range of climbing, the area also has a number of fine walking and mountaineering trips. Photos here show a variety of each in varying conditions.
