Climbing Ben Nevis
We are located at the foot of Ben Nevis and are a short walk from the 'tourist path' to the summit. It's a great climb and the views from the top on a clear day are amazing.
However, it's very important that you follow the safety information in the leaflet below and we recommend that you visit the nearby Glen Nevis Visitor Centre for more information on current climbing conditions before you set off.

"Me and my husband stayed last night in one of the pods. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the site is very clean including the toilet facilities. The pods are brilliant and have extra touches to them such as the different colour lighting. The views from the pods are amazing too."

Walking in Glen Nevis
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.
