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).

Can do a pleasant half day by combining this hill with the corbett Beinn Dearg from Innerwick. Take the broad south ridge to Meall a'Mhuic's summit cairn then drop east to where the Lairig Ghallabhaich crosses the burn . A muddy hill track takes you to some metal fence posts which are followed to the summit cairn. Take a horseshoe to Creag Ard with good views down Glen Lyon and then take a traverse down southern slopes to Innerwick. Approx 4 hours.
