Google Maps Suggests Hiking Routes on UK Peaks That Are Pretty Much Fatal

Ben Nevis is, at 4,413 feet, the highest point on the island of Great Britain. Unless you follow Google Maps, that is. The route Google suggests is straight up near vertical rock sections that are “potentially fatal” says Heather Morning of the group Mountaineering Scotland. An Tallach, a mountain in northwest Scotland, for example, appears on Google Maps with hiking directions too. The John Muir Trust has reached out to Google to have these maps corrected, but so far have been met with silence.
