NEVIS RANGE Mountain Experience is in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland, 7 miles north of Fort William. The mountain gondola will transport you to 650m on Aonach Mor where you'll find the Snowgoose restaurant & bar with awesome views, mountain trails, kids play area, and the Mountain discovery Centre (summer only). In the winter, we're open for sledging, skiing and boarding. There's biking for all in Leanachan forest, plus bike wash, bike hire and a skills park. The NEVIS downhill track (with gondola uplift) hosts the Mountian Bike World Cup each year and there's the new red Route opening in summer 2009. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Gondola ride to the top (not cheap but worth it), great walks to one of 2 viewpoints (takes an hour or so but worth it), great views once you get there over the valley or of the snow laden mountains with a peek of Ben Nevis behind. TIP 1 check the Nevis Range website before you go up as there... More

If the weather is good, this is a must! The views are amazing. There are also mountain bike tracks which are used for championships, the bikes are carried on racks on the gondola. Whether you are an adrenaline junkie or someone who loves a beautiful view this should satisfy all, unless you are scared of heights. There is a cafe... More

Worth a trip up in the Gondola for the views but expensive and disappointed no footpaths to walk back down . The only way down was either on a mountain bike or by returning in the gondola.

We enjoyed the gondola return trip. Brisk breezy walk at the top but well worth it for the views over Loch Eil and Fort William. Snow goose cafe was great for coffee at the top. Gondolas only hold six people but we were lucky it was quite quiet and we had one to ourselves.

We took the Gondola ride to the half way mark and enjoyed the fantastic views over Fort William and the surrounding mountains. We visited in summer and the air was crisp and cool, with still a few patches of snow. It would be a fabulous spot to visit in winter and enjoy all the "snow" activities.

It was very easy to find this attraction, with ample parking. The Gondola staff make it very easy to board and alight from the lift even slowing it down to allow time for my disabled wife to get aboard. You get very good views of the down hill mountain bike runs on the way up to the restaurant and splendid... More
