If climbing Ben Nevis isn’t your thing, there are lots of easier spectacular walks around too. Check out the WalkHighlands website for info.
Find information on walking and much, much more at the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre. There’s lots of parking, picnic tables and a short walk along the riverside if you’d rather admire the Ben than climb it! There are toilets and a gift shop. Open April to October.
Experience the incredible sights and sounds of Scotland’s natural world at a nearby National Nature Reserve. The reserves help protect an amazing range of wildlife and landscapes for you to visit and enjoy.
