Project LP.C3 (2016 - 2019)

North Face Path

This project will carry out conservation work and upgrading of the footpath which links the CIC hut and the halfway Lochan. The path, which is currently in a state of deterioration, contours around the iconic North Face of Ben Nevis. The project will involve a range of targeted solutions including re-stabilisation, surfacing, upgrade, drainage, pre-emptive erosion control and full rebuild in key sections. The project will take a ‘light-touch’ approach, to ensure the unique, wild character of the area is not impacted.


The North Face Path is generously funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and SSE Sustainable Development Fund.
