Nevis 21: a celebration
On 21 June 2021 the John Muir Trust celebrated 21 years of caring for Nevis.
As the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis is a natural source of inspiration to many. A place of adventure and achievement, spectacular beauty and rare wildlife, it’s somewhere that leaves visitors with a true sense of wildness. But the appeal of Nevis is much more than the peak – it’s the rocky slopes, the crags that provide a home to rare Alpine plants, the plunging waterfall at Steall, and the vibrant native woodlands that edge the river.
There are so many ways to get involved in our Nevis 21 celebrations:
- Sign up to volunteer: support with basic path maintenance and a summit litter pick
- Donate to our Nevis 21 Appeal
- Share your 'My Nevis' memories of the mountain
- Bag one of our limited edition Nevis water bottles and beanies (pictured below)

Our vision for Nevis...
...is of flourishing native woodlands, heathlands and uplands; a place where nature is given free rein to develop a natural mosaic of wild landscapes and habitats that lock in carbon; where people are welcome but their impact on the landscape is minimal, and the mountain and its diverse plants, insects and wildlife are protected and valued for generations to come.
