Ben Nevis stands at 1344 metres and overlooks Fort William. It is the highest mountain in Britain and is now owned by the John Muir Trust. Nevis comes from the Gaelic work for heavy or clouds. The top is covered in snow for most of the winter and spring and the summit is shrouded by clouds for about 300 days of the year.
