Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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!

I really loved my trip up the mountain.
It was a brisk day, the gondala ride was exciting and fun, the wind was blowing so we got jiggled around abit.
It was good visibility and we got to see everything.
We ate in the restaurant, food was ok, canteen style fair.
My first ever taste of haggis and it was good. We messed around on a ski simulation game and bought some pressie for the kids.
We then went tubing which is free and great fun.
We were going to go for one of the walks but it started to rain. We headed back and were treated to some extreme bikers going down bits of the mountain from the air.
All in all I will go again and would recommend it to others.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at the Pine Martin Cafe followed by a trip on the cable car - stunning views, autumnal and rolling clouds - simply beautiful and well worth it.

“Gondola Ride up the mountain range”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Great views over Fort William and beyond, great fun any time of the year! There's a restaurant and gift shop at the top and you can sit out on the Decking and enjoy the sunshine.

Hello everyone - after reading through these posts I had to post this information. The Nevis Range gondola mountain experience takes visitors 650m up the mountain of Aonach Mor. The gondola is a fantastic experience, and you get great view of the great glen and OF BEN NEVIS but you are not on Ben Nevis. I am local in this area, my job here is poviding visitors with information about the local area.

There are NO facilities on Ben Nevis. there are no toilets, no cafe, nothing after you have left the Glen Nevis visitor centre.

Nevis Range (the gondola) has multiple places to eat (one at the top, one at the bottom), there are toilets at the top station and bottom station as well.
