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!

My first trip to Scotland and this was a must. Stayed in Scotland for 4 days due to high winds the gondola was closed. Decided to try before our journey home on the Monday. Luckily it was open. Absolutely breathtaking views so glad I did it.

We planned a day out here and made the trip to Fort William and then round to Nevis Range, when we arrived the gondolas were off with the wind. I can't blame them for the wind but clearly people travel to get to the Nevis range and I just wonder why you don't put notices up in Fort William at... More

Fascinating ride in cable car going up the mountain. Thankfully weather was good so we could enjoy the ride an a short stay on top. As you go up you can enjoy natural beauty relax on top in a resort with some very tasty food. Not tried mountain biking experience but highly recommended if you are thrill lovers

We arrived at the Gondola parking area, not far from Fort William, to be used on to the Gondola which takes 6 people. What a brilliant ride to the base on Ben Nevis, no need to be apprehensive of the ride, it is quiet and smooth and scenery is breath taking. The sights at the top are magnificent,,seeing for miles...

Although there was loads of flooding over new year we managed to sneak a trip up the gondola on a beautiful new years eve day! The cost is reasonable, possibly a little expensive, and wouldn't be worth it without going for a walk at the top. Once at the top the cafe is great (and surprisingly cheap) and there's two... More

This ride is well worth the trip and only costs around 10 pounds. Go on a clear day to get the best out of the ride. Omnce at the top you can walk around watching the snow boarders and skiers. Alternately take your skis/snowboard and get moving - equipment can be hired at a reasonable cost. Great photo opportunities. There... More

This was an excellent trip up the mountain side in a cable car, the kids loved it. We loved the hot chocolate at the very large cafe at the top. The views were stunning and the kids spent most of the time in the snow. We watched the skiing and snow boarders from the warmth of the cafe. Well worth... More
