Charity Walks up Ben Nevis

This page about charity walks on Ben Nevis provides some worthwhile information which you should read before getting involved.

Ben Nevis attracts a large number of people wanting to become involved in charitable events, either by competing the Three Peaks Challenge or simply getting to the top of the highest point in the United Kingdom.

Whilst welcoming access onto the mountain, the Nevis Partnership is becoming increasingly aware of the issues of poorly managed charity events and the negative impacts they may have on the mountain and in the access points located in Glen Nevis, as well as the need to manage the sheer volume of events now being delivered.

In order to manage these issues the Nevis Partnership is supporting the development of an events register so that we may, together, start to reduce the negative impacts of such events by identifying issues in advance and managing out the problems in consultation with event planners.

All events with 12 or more persons should be registering their event with the Ben Nevis visitor centre manager. In addition event organisers can then identify any additional services or support they may need to help with their planning. For example, the use of the Ben Nevis visitor centre grounds for hosting marquee’s or radio tents, the supply of waste skips for the effective removal of event rubbish, additional hours to be made available for the operation of the public toilets on site in the Glen. 
 All of these services can then be agreed in advance and managed by all the organisations involved in the delivery of any event.

Please note, with regard data protection:
The register will be available publicly and on demand so that all organisations or individuals wishing to book events onto Ben Nevis can have the opportunity to choose an appropriate time with regard whatever other events maybe being planned. By placing your event information on the register it will be made available to the general public.
