Climbing Ben Nevis

Caravan & Camping Club

We are recommended by the Caravan & Camping Club, but are not affiliated with them so do not offer reduced rates for members.

For the energetic, the footpath up Ben Nevis (highest mountain in the UK) starts from Glen Nevis. The West Highland Way also passes through Glen Nevis at the end of a 95 mile walk from Glasgow.

The Gorge is a fabulous feature of the Glen and provides a spectacular walk through to the higher falls.

The Lower Falls is easily accessed by foot and is a favourite point in the Glen for photographs. There are also gentler riverside walks and numerous quiet forest walks within the Glen. Reception staff will be happy to suggest a walk for you.
