Trust urges Ben Nevis vote
Bookmark and Share
Mountain walkers have been urged to vote for Ben Nevis in an online poll that will see the favourite cause chosen to receive money for conservation work. listed six options to choose from, with Britain's highest mountain being joined by two Lake District projects, a woodland scheme near Glasgow, a moorland bridleway improvement near Rotherham and bee habitat on the Pembrokeshire Coast.

The John Muir Trust is backing the plan to help clean up Ben Nevis and maintain its pathways, noting that a lot of litter gets left on the mountain and that this harms the environment.

Voting will go on until February 10th to decide who gets the €30,000 (£26,000) grant from the EOG Association for Conservation, a European group set up by the outdoor industry.

People looking to don men's walking boots or women's walking boots and tackle the mountain may wish to support the plan.

Visitors to Ben Nevis may also enjoy climbing other Munros in the area such as Carn Mor Dearg, Sgurr a' Mhaim, Sgurr Eilde Mor, An Gearanach and Mullach nan Coirean.
