The final leg of this coast to coast hike follows the Lairig Mor pass skirting the base of Ben Nevis to finish in Fort William.

All that remains is a final push to the west coast at Fort William. Reflect on a coast to coast journey of contrasts as you walk through the remote Lairigmor pass towards Ben Nevis. Scotland’s highest mountain, which marks the end of your coast to coast epic. Well done!
