Behind us we see part of the ridge we climbed and Ben Nevis peak still in the clouds

The descent is along the Mountain track on the west side but soon we will divert from this path to reach back to our starting point

200 m of scrambling leads us to the summit of Ben Nevis at 1345 m - a rather gloomy place with a cairn and some ruins

For a short while the clouds clear slightly and we can see the ridge we just passed. Do you spot the lonely hiker?

We have now passed the ridge and take a short pause around noon at the cairn at 1150 m, before the final ascent.

Snow starts to fall and the wind picks up.
