NEVIS RANGE Mountain Experience is in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland, 7 miles north of Fort William. The mountain gondola will transport you to 650m on Aonach Mor where you'll find the Snowgoose restaurant & bar with awesome views, mountain trails, kids play area, and the Mountain discovery Centre (summer only). In the winter, we're open for sledging, skiing and boarding. There's biking for all in Leanachan forest, plus bike wash, bike hire and a skills park. The NEVIS downhill track (with gondola uplift) hosts the Mountian Bike World Cup each year and there's the new red Route opening in summer 2009. We hope you love it as much as we do!

The Gondola ride was nice, the view at the top was pretty. The restaurant at the top has soup and premade meals. In the summer or spring, it seems to be a big thing for a bike adventure down the side of a mountain. It would be fun to see a race. There are pretty places to visit.

Going up is wonderful! What an amazing view! The restaurant is good, it has a huge area for trekking and nice ski school. Really enjoyed our day there.

Purchased some snowboarding lessons from itison. We arrived early and the friendly staff got us set up with boots and boards (We brought our own jackets and stuff). Went on up the gondola which takes just over ten minutes. Met our instructor Tom who was fantastic. We had to learn on dry slope which wasn't ideal but we made the... More

Very beautiful mountain in Scotland. Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Scotland. During summer time, you can completely enjoy the mountain view clearly with better temperature compare to winter season. There's student price for taking cable car from the bottom to the middle of mountain. It's amazing lovely mountain, I love it very much. It's best recommend attraction place... More

This is well worth visiting if you enjoy a panoramic view and a sense of the highest mountain in the U.K. It is definitely beautiful. Be prepared for cool weather, even in the summer.

The Nevis Range is a favourite of ours, we visit several times a year. My husband is a keen photographer & this is the main reason for our visits, the scenery. Our grandkids love going up on the Gondolas & going tubing. The play park was unusable as the amount of muck was awful, it was shame but didn't spoil... More

What an amazing experience this was. We have passed this many times and never stopped, but thank goodness we did. The views were totally amazing both going up and even more so at the top. A lovely cafe at the top. Stunning views and walks.

Recently stopped here to take the gondola to the top and view the surrounding beauty. What amazing views can be observed up at top when weather permits. There is a café up top that serves hot and cold food as well as a small bar. We were a group of 5 persons who took advantage of the views that day... More
