Next was a day out with the Denton family, Mum Jane and her sons Matt and Ollie. A great team performance in some pretty wet weather got us to the summit and we all arrived back down for some hot chocolate with smiles on our faces!

I had a super speedy trip up and down the Ben with Rob next. We were less than 5 hours on the hill which meant we had a chance to chat about Ben Nevis in Winter in the Ben Nevis Inn afterwards, for which Rob is super keen to return for!
A superb couple of days followed with Janet from Canada. Janet has done a fair bit of hiking and was keen to see Ben Nevis' best side so we took a trip around the Carn Mor Dearg Arete. Despite a rather wet start, things improved as we reached Carn Mor Dearg and the views juts kept improving all day!
