This map is part of the Landranger (Pink) series and is designed for people who really want to get to know an area. It includes the following information: tourist information, camping and caravan sites, picnic areas and viewpoints, selected places of interest and rights of way information for England and Wales. Each map in the series covers an area of 40 km by 40 km (25 miles by 25 miles) and like other Ordnance Survey maps, National Grid squares are provided so that any feature can be given a unique reference number. Perfect for planning ahead and local excursions, these maps are full of useful information that will help you really get to know an area.

However, for fear of being too harsh, these maps would be good for a few uses. For cycling around the area, these would be perfect (1:25000 would be too difficult to follow on a bike as you'd be moving too quickly). For keeping as a memento of a good day out, great again. And OS maps are always going to be good, regardless of scale.
But for walking, unless your walk is very simple (sticking to obvious large paths) then it would be quite difficult to navigate with a map of this scale, especially around Ben Nevis where lethal cliff edges surround more than half of the 260 degrees around you and white outs in fog/clouds can come out of nowhere. And it's often important to be able to pick out features of the land that help you find where you are on a map, and these features are much easier to see on a 1:2500.
In my opinion, in the case of mountains with big cliffs like this, a 1:25000 really could save your life.
