Accommodation

Our accommodation for the first night is the stunning Glen Nevis Hostel, only a short distance from the famous Fort William in the Grampian Mountains National Park.

It offers our group comfortable accommodation sitting at the foot of Ben Nevis, with a wide range of private en-suite rooms and comfortable shared dorms with secure under-bed storage, USB power sockets and bedside lighting for every bed, surrounded by stunning scenery at every angle.

Our accommodation for the trip will be in 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group. If you’re booking with a friend let us know and we’ll make sure you get a room together. 

Our second night will be spent on Scafell Pike, during the 24 hour challenge, and then there will be an opportunity to sleep on the mini bus as we travel down to Snowdonia.
