Project LP.C3 (2016 - 2019)

North Face Path

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


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