Celtic fans… Chilly (Image: YouTube/William Mulholland)

A Ben Nevis Celtic huddle took place on Saturday, after a group of fans got together on top of the British mountain.

See the very high huddle, taking place at 4408ft, that was organised by the Celtic Charity in its 125th year to raise funds for their 1254125 campaign.

The charity focus on “improving the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable people all over the world” and the 1254125 campaign challenges participants to raise £125 for the cause.

Watch the Ben Nevis Celtic huddle below:

Thanks to Wikipedia, we know that:

Ben Nevis [or Beinn Nibheis] is the highest mountain in the British Isles. Standing at 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level, it is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William.

… and that:

The mountain is a popular destination attracting an estimated 100,000 ascents a year, around three-quarters of which use the Pony Path from Glen Nevis. The 700-metre (2,300 ft) cliffs of the north face are among the highest in the United Kingdom, providing classic scrambles and rock climbs of all difficulties for climbers and mountaineers. They are also the principal locations in the UK for ice climbing.

The summit, which is the collapsed dome of an ancient volcano, features the ruins of an observatory which was continuously staffed between 1883 and 1904. The meteorological data collected during this period are still important for understanding Scottish mountain weather. C. T. R. Wilson was inspired to invent the cloud chamber after a period spent working at the observatory.
