Ben Nevis Ultra - Skyline Scotland

Ben Nevis Ultra

The Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ journey includes remote runnable tracks, technical single track, airy trackless ridges and some connecting remote mountain roads. Truly, this course is for the boldest all-round ultra-runners.


Starting from the southern shore of the world famous Loch Ness, the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ follows a route through remote Scottish Highland Glens, passing over the summit of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, before finishing at the Skyline Scotland™ Event Centre in Kinlochleven.

In keeping with the ethos of the Salomon Skyline Scotland™ races, this route is very challenging with considerable height gain, great variability in the terrain, multiple river crossings, and an airy traverse of the one Scotland’s most famous ridges, the Carn Mor Dearg Arete, leading to the summit of Ben Nevis. 

It is almost certainly the UK’s toughest 100km+ Ultra route!

  • Distance: ~110km*
