Glen Nevis Walks podcast episode 5

In episode 5 of the Glen Nevis Walks podcast series we take a gentle circuit of the lower slopes of Ben Nevis itself, hearing about the Gaelic names and their meanings of Ben Nevis and many of the other hills and features you can see. We also talk to mountain guide Mick Tighe about his rather daring rescues on the north face cliffs on the Ben, being lowered down the cliffs on a 1000 foot rope to pluck injured ice climbers of the face. Dropping back down and across to the wooded side of the glen, we hear from John Muir Trust ranger Ali Austin about some of the fantastic wildlife you’ll spot in the woods or by the river.
