Nevis Range



The mountain habitat on Aonach Mor is unique, and what better way to explore the flora, fauna and wildlife, than on foot? Whether you want to venture to one of our two mountain view points or opt for one of the many forests walks, you will be amazed by the natural beauty surrounding you! 

Leanachan Forest, on the lower slopes of Aonach Mor, offers you over 25 miles of forest trails to explore on foot. All with the stunning backdrop of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

There are also various viewpoints along the forest trails that offer breathtaking views of the scenery, Fort William and the surrounding area, the hills of Ardgour and Moidart and the impressive overshadowing mass of Ben Nevis.

The Nevis Range Base Station is an excellent start point for your forest experience with lots of parking space.

Venture along one of the established mountain trails leading to panoramic viewpoints and take in spectacular views which, on a clear day, can extend as far as the Inner Hebrides. Our Mountain trails are signposted and start at the Gondola Top Station. These are both relatively easy walks enabling all our visitors with varying abilities, to enjoy and appreciate the experience. And enjoy the true magnificence and ruggedness of the Scottish Highlands.


Sgurr Finnisg-aig

The walk to Sgurr Finnisg-aig is the shorter of the two trails, taking approximately 40 minutes return. This is an excellent viewpoint, which looks out across the Great Glen and Hills of Knoydart. From here you can also look back to the impressive overshadowing mass of Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis.

Meall Beag

Meall Beag is a slightly longer trail, taking approximately 1 hour return. This trail leads visitors in the opposite direction from Sgurr Finnisg-aig. From the Meall Beag viewpoint the views across Loch Linnhe, Loch Eil, the hills of Ardgour and Moidart are simply stunning.
