This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

A stunning mountain despite the low height - the slopes drop all the way to sea level. No paths but busy by Western Isles standards - I glimsped two others on the hill all day. But the summit is gained quite easily (I ascended directly from the south) and the views are phenominal across Harris, Lewis and the Uists. Distant is Skye's Trotternish Peninsula and St. Kilda. The mountain's isolation makes it hard to add other peaks on without enormous drop and reascent, but I added on the Tops Teileasbhal and spectacular Sron Scourst.
