Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
Altitude
663 m (2175 ft)

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).

We did this on a low cloud day and weren't disappointed at all. Walked from Ballachulish on main path south of village, view of mountain all the way - wuite inposing for a mear 663m! Across to Meall Mor to radio mast through forest (bit of a pain) then NW back into village. Dodged a few wicked snow showers in Bothy Bag - worth a trip out
