"The Ben," in Lochlaber, Highland, Scotland, is the highest point in the British Isles, and at 1345m, it is a full 162m higher than Northern Scotland's Carn Eige. It is the remnant of an old volcano, and its smooth West and South faces are contrasted by very rugged and steep cliffs on the North and East sides. Our map of Ben Nevis includes Carn Dearg and the Ben, the arete to Carn Mor Dearg, and its series of lower summits. To the East, you'll find all of Aonach Beag and Aonach Mor. The map is bounded by valleys: Glen Nevis, Water of Nevis, and Nevis Range.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
