Off Glen Nevis, Fort William, United Kingdom, PH33 6HW
An astonishing spectacle of ethereal beauty, the 1,345 meter (4,411 feet) Ben Nevis mountain is undoubtedly Scotland's most remarkable crest. The highest mountain in the British Isles is perched along the lofty Highlands near Scotland's Fort William, an idyllic alpine town. Here it blends in with the majestic beauty of the Grampian Mountain ridge, attracting a stripe of experienced hikers and mountaineering enthusiasts every year. Resembling a stark Goliathan vision, the mountain was an active volcano millions of years ago that erupted and consequently caved in on itself, leaving in its wake fragments of pale granite that can still be seen today. Brilliantly shrouded in the mellow glow of the Scottish sun, the mountain features a magically colored gradient along its steep sides that becomes lighter as you reach the apex. The name Ben Nevis roughly translates into 'mountain with its head in the clouds' in Gaelic parlance, a profoundly apt description for this magnificent peak.
