Ben Nevis


Ben Nevis is the largest mountain in the UK and it is situated at the end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of Scotland near Fort William. This is a walkers and climbers paradise.

For those that reach the high cliffs of the north face - spectacular views await. Rock climbing is popular here as well as ice climbing.

Ben Nevis is 1,344 metres above sea level ( 4,409 feet ).

This ancient and beautiful landscape features a mountain gondola which whisks people 2150 feet up Aonach Mor near Bean Nevis. The views from here are breathtaking.

A journey on the gondolas takes about 15 minutes for you to reach the Nevis Range with its restaurant, bar and shop. From here you can take a fairly leisurely walk to Ben Nevis and take in the sheer magnitude of the environment.

During the winter months the slopes of Aonach Mor are packed with skiers and boarders. There is an excellent ski-school and winter climbing.
