From 1883 to 1904 scientists lived and worked year round at the summit of Ben Nevis. In summer there were opportunities for the observers to engage in a range of activities such as climbing, rope-quoits on the observatory tobogganing and skiing. Photography was very popular and many of the observers played musical instruments.
