Glen Nevis Caravan and Camping Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We stopped here for 4 nights in July 2014 with our two children (12yrs and 16yrs) in our caravan.
The site is absolutely beautiful, literally right at the foot of Ben Nevis with fantastic views and access if you're wanting to climb it.
The site is exceptionally clean and staff were extremely polite and helpful.
We were very lucky with the weather and therefore were able to simply cross the road and paddle in the River Nevis to cool down.
Only down side was that we pre-booked for 3 nights and therefore when we wanted to stay an extra night we had to move to a different part of the site that cannot be pre-booked. Had we known that such a large proportion of the site was unreserved, it would have been better to have just turned up and then stay for as many nights as you liked.
Also, there did only appear to be one set of toilets, showers, facilities etc. which could be a trek depending on whereabouts on the site you are, but it didn't cause us any problems.
Overall a fantastic site in a beautiful, peaceful part of the World, that I would recommend to anybody and we can't wait to visit again

We stayed in our campervan here and found the facilities were great. This is a huge park but as it is laid out in many different sections, it still felt cosy. It is beautifully nestled in a basin with fantastic views of the mountains all around. We arrived in the evening and so chose to have tea from the on-site caravan takeaway rather than the restaurant down the road. There was a reasonable choice of food and what we had was nice and of good quality and price.

We stayed here in May 2014 in one of the Highland Lodges and it was a lovely accommodation and ideal location right on the doorstep of Ben Nevis and Fort William town centre.

The accommodation was brilliant - we stayed in Highland Lodge 1 (there are 3 Lodges in all which are sited next to each but plenty of privacy). The Lodge was well kitted out with furniture, fixtures and fittings that make it a "home from home" feeling. The views from the lounge window onto the mountains and forests are stunning.

There is a restaurant/bar a little walk along a path which connects the Highland Lodges with the static caravans area and we found the food very good and the staff wonderful and always happy to help with a professional approach but friendly.

The location is perfect for anyone wanting to use this as a base for exploring the local walks, especially Ben Nevis (did I say walk!) We do like walking and the great outdoors and this location coupled with the restaurant and bar just a short walk from our lodge was perfect to end a day spent in the mountains and forests surrounding the Glen Nevis Park.

You can walk into Fort William either by the road which takes about 30 minutes or across mountain/forest trail at the side of Glen Nevis which is practically the same time as the road at 30 minutes but with more stunning views.

My partner splashed out on a £16 shot of the local special whisky for me in the bar after one of our walks,I think it was 40 year old distilled whisky and boy was it a smooth wee dram and a special one off luxury for me as I like a wee dram sometimes.

The Glen Nevis Park we found to be very peaceful and to spend some time here away from the city was an experience to remember and one place we will ,be returning to soon.

Room Tip: You can book static caravans or cottages too at Glen Nevis but we booked one of the Highland Lodges...

We (a group of 5 friends on a walking holiday) stayed at the Glen Nevis Holidays self catering park for 3 nights. It was really easy to find and had great access to Ben Nevis and the surrounding areas. The self catering park was very peaceful which was really relaxing. The site, bar and waiting staff were really friendly and, very helpful and knowledgable about the local area. The caravan was spotless, beds comfortable and the shower and site show block really very good indeed, much needed after a long day walking! I would definitiely stay here again, it was such good value for money and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of holidaying in the West Highlands.

Stayed for four nights in a static caravan with friends for the Mountain Bike World Cup at Torlundy. The park is clean and relaxing and each caravan feels private with its own wee bench and sitting area. There is a pub and restaurant onsite - normal fare with reasonable prices. Great scenery and only 1.5miles from Fort Bill itself. Well recommended.

Our first visit with 2 grand children was July 2013 a brilliant holiday for them, a holiday they couldn't wait to repeat. We were not disappointed, the site we were allocated was excellent with electric, water and grey waste ready to plug in and connect.
Last year our grand children spent most of their time walking in the river Nevis which due to a hot dry spell of weather was exceptionally low and could be traversed and walked on for some distance.
The only down side last year was our meal at the restaurant and bar close to the site and part of this group this was a total disappointment. We usually on the last night of a holiday go for a special meal as a highlight of our holiday, the service and meal were mediocre.
This year we tried the new Cafe Beag for lunch (part of Glen Nevis Park though outside the park) we were delighted with everything we had from the menu and the service and portions were excellent. We were waited on by Natalie an extremely helpful and happy girl.
Our last night this year we decided with some trepidation to again visit the restaurant for our special last night meal. Wow! were we surprised the atmosphere and ambience were tangible and our waitress from the Cafe Beag the day before was there. The food and portions were excellent and Natalie was as cheerful and helpful as she had been the previous day a true asset to Glen Nevis Park. Will I be back next? Of course I will. Well done Glen Nevis
