From Fort William, up the Nevis river valley and left up the NW side of Ben Nevis to reach the upper Allt a’Mhuilinn valley.


The Charles Inglis Clark Memorial Hut is the highest hut in the British Isles. It is set at the foot of the N face of Ben Nevis and a much sought-after option for ice and mixed climbers staying in the area (much sought-after meaning fully booked weeks in advance!!).

Applications to stay at the hut should be addressed to the Honorary Custodian: Mr R. Clothier (35 Broompark Drive, Newton Mearns, Glasgow G77 5DZ)
