					Where is Ben Nevis situated?

                                                Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles. 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.

                                                As is common for many Scottish mountains, it is known both to
                                                locals and visitors as simply the Ben. It attracts an estimated
                                                100,000 ascents a year around three-quarters of which are made
                                                using the well-constructed Pony Track from Glen Nevis on the
                                                south side of the mountain. For climbers and mountaineers the
                                                main attraction lies in the 700-metre (2,300 ft) high cliffs of the
north face; among the highest cliffs in the United Kingdom, they harbour some classic scrambles and rock
climbs of all difficulties, and are one of the principal locations in the UK for ice climbing.
