Topic - ben nevis in december?

Seb Lee on 24 Dec 2012

ok so me and the missus are thinking about hiking up the ben via the pony trek route. she's done very little hillwalking, but is in good shape. i'm pretty fit and have been going for long coastal walks since i was a kid. i've done D.O.E silver and comfortable with a map and compass.

now the introduction's over...

i need advice on kit for her. some recommendations on some good trousers would be appreciated. I've got her the rab womens microlight for chrimbo, and she's got a hardshell, base and midlayers. just not sure on the trousers.

also, as i understand (from some light googling) wild camping is fine on the glen?

my only other thought is the weather in December. prepared for low cloud, snow and cold, but from what i gather, providing i don't get us lost, we should be fine?

Your valued opinions welcome.
Cheers Seb
