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).

I recommend making an overnight trip of this great wee hill by staying at the MBA maintained Staoineag Bothy which is just at the hills WSW foot . It is about 8Km from Corrour Station to the bothy and the hill can either be accessed from stepping stones next to the bothy (if water levels allow) or from the deserted Creaguaineach Lodge. Fantastic view point and you have a number of other usually remote hills in striking distance.
