Ben Nevis gets new navigational cairns
Bookmark and Share
Ben Nevis now has two new navigational cairns on its summit plateau, which will be used to help walkers and climbers avoid two dangerous gullies.

Landowner the John Muir Trust has installed the cairns at the top of Coure Leis and Number 4 Gully, which it decided to put in place after a public consultation earlier this year.

Those heading for the highest point in Britain with a climbing rope or walking boots may particularly rely on the markers to show them the way when heavy snow arrives and no other features are visible.

As well as the upper slopes and summit of Ben Nevis, the John Muir Trust also owns and looks after surrounding areas, such as the Steall Gorge.

The organisation managed to raise the funds this year to repair the path up the popular ravine and has announced it will be closed for two days on November 12thand 13th to allow for the delivery of materials.

Repair work will then commence and continue until March 2013.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801478523-ADNFCR
