Project LP.C7 (2014 - 2017)

Celebrating the Wild

Fort William Mountain Festival & Nevis Landscape Partnership will be Celebrating the Wild in lots of different ways and you're more than welcome to join in! You can seize the adventure and sign up for one of our Carpe Diem events, nominate your very own Youth Mountain Culture Ambassador and celebrate the mountain culture and heritage of the local area. We are also aiming to work with local artists to create a visually stunning tribute to the icemen who pioneered mountaineering in Lochaber. Since the project was launched we have hosted a successful series of fully-booked Carpe Diem adventure days on Ben Nevis which saw the removal of over 50kg of litter from the mountain. Willing participants explored the mountain in various ways such as scrambling up Ledge Route, tackling the famous Tower Ridge & camping at halfway lochan whilst being looked after by local mountain guides. The Scottish Youth Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture was introduced at last year's Fort William Mountain Festival and the inaugural winner was Zeki Basan. An inspiring and enthusiastic young man, he will pass on the title at #FWMF2016.
