Did you know that among various strange ascents of Ben Nevis two have been made by car the first in 1911 in a Model T Ford? The man who drove then returned in 1928 to repeat his feat in a Model A. A horse and cart have also made it to the summit; and a wheelbarrow. And for challenge and charity others have climbed the mountain carrying a bed; a barrel of beer; and a piano (but not all at once).
