MWIS Forecast

MWIS - Mountain Weather Information Service provides visitors with a professional mountain forecast for climbers in Fort Wililam and Ben Nevis area

MWIS is an innovative, online mountain weather forecasting service for the Scottish mountains and including the  Ben Nevis and Glencoe mountain areas.  The site has its own professional meteorologolist, Geoff Monk who prepares specific mountain forecasts each day for visitors and subscribers. Visit the MWIS website from here link.

If you are planning an adventure into the Scottish mountains, including a hike up the Ben Nevis Mountain Footpath, PLEASE check the forecasts for the period you will be exposed on our mountains. Mountain rescue in the UK is not free. It costs a very huge amount of public financial resources to rescue people who have not prepared responsibly for a trip in our mountains.
