Falmouth Uni on Ben Nevis

Today was a great day on the hill with Falmouth and Exeter Uni walking club.  Plan A was the 3 peaks but after their bus broke down on the way up plan B was Ben Nevis and it worked out well.

With myself, Julie and Hannah working for Scott we set off with 24 students.  And we all made it to the top, together.  With good progress all the way up and minimum kit faf with that number of people we were on the top in 4 hours, all be it in a blizzard.  With the Scottish snow blowing in our faces we made our way down off the plateaux and over the Red Burn.  In just over 7 hours we were all back at the car park.

It’s not often that you get a big group who all walk at the same pace and look out for each other along the way.  All of whom enjoyed the winter experience, dare I say better than doing the 3 peaks.
