Climb Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain at 1344m (4406’). Very popular to do, but can also be very dangerous. Take advice before attempting it!!
Explore Glen Nevis and the Steall falls. This must be the most spectacular short walk in the area. One of the ‘must see’ things to do when you are in Fort William
Walk or scramble amongst majestic mountains in the Outdoor Capital of the UK. Whether it is in full sun to enjoy the panoramic vistas, or misty with shifting clouds and an approaching storm, there are memorable walks to challenge the most adventurous.
If climbing Ben Nevis isn’t your thing, there are lots of easier spectacular walks around too. Check out the WalkHighlands website for info.
Find information on walking and much, much more at the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre. There’s lots of parking, picnic tables and a short walk along the riverside if you’d rather admire the Ben than climb it! There are toilets and a gift shop. Open April to October.
Experience the incredible sights and sounds of Scotland’s natural world at a nearby National Nature Reserve. The reserves help protect an amazing range of wildlife and landscapes for you to visit and enjoy. There is magnificent Creag Megaidh (pronounced Craig Meggie) near Laggan, the ancient mossy oakwoods at Ariundle near Strontian or you can stand and wonder at the famous ‘Parallel Roads’ of Glen Roy created by glacial action in the last ice age.
