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!

“Fabulous views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

We didn't have a lot of time but took the gondola up and as it was a sunny day we were able to get some really good views and watch the mountain bikers taking off. The restaurant and gondola station need some work however as neither were very inviting.

“Magnificent views on a sunny day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

The gondola is an excellent way to get a mountain experience without having to climb! We were blessed with clear skies so the views were absolutely stunning! Two easy walks to different viewpoints and a reasonably priced restaurant. It was exciting to see the mountain bikers set off downhill, there are several tracks with varying difficulty.

“Great for views and if your into it, great mtb ing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We were lucky and has great weather so the gondola ride up and the views from the top two viewpoints were stunning, definitely worth it.

However the restaurant and gondola station were pretty poor, one previous review mentioned it was like going back into the seventies and we completely agree.

So much could be improved as its got so much going for it if they could improve the facilities and other items(including further walking trails which are longer and go higher up the mountain, please do this)

Having been to a number of skiing resorts and yes they won't have as many people visit here they could still improve.

“For the ride and the views - not more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Amazing views on a clear day and a fun ride in the gondola, but if you are expecting more then forget it. Comes into its own in winter or for mountain bikers.

“Great Attraction.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

This is one attraction not to be missed ! the gondola ride was very smooth the day we visited, the cost of £23 for two adults is very reasonable considering the running costs, wages etc, etc. The views are absolutely stunning , and if you are into photography you will be amazed with the stunning views of Lochaber and beyond. the staff were most helpful, there is only one downfall to this attraction and that is the toilets, they are absolutely disgusting, the smell is like being next to a sewage works , management please take note !!!! After all this is one of Scotland's top tourist attractions. The food is good but rather expensive.
