Ben Nevis
The 1883 Pony Track to the summit remains the simplest and most popular route of ascent - it begins at Achintee on the east side of Glen Nevis about 2 km (1.2 mi) from Fort William town centre. Thanks to the zig-zags, the path is not unusually steep apart from in the initial stages, but inexperienced walkers should be aware that the descent is relatively arduous and wearing on the knees.
