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!

Montaineering the easy way

Great way to get halfway up the mountain without any effort. For those with a conscience, there is an easy half mile walk at the top for a great view looking North and West. You... read more

Great way to get halfway up the mountain without any effort. For those with a conscience, there is an easy half mile walk at the top for a great view looking North and West. You can watch the brave (or mad!) mountain bikers making their way down on totally hairy slopes or you can sit in the cafe and relax.... More

Visited in August 2015 - we are a family of three. Excellent day out - my wife's comment was 'This makes me feel I am in Scotland'! The Gondola ride was as much a highlight for my 10 year old daughter as it was for my wife and me. We were lucky with the weather - the views are stunning... More

Lovely views from top. Nothing at the top except a couple of snow ploughs and a tiny play area and restaurant. Great if you're a walker or like mountain bikes though. Gondolas are quite scratched and hard to see through.

Wonderful ride up the mountain for some wonderful views. Post a postcard from the postbox at the top, it gets a special post mark. The mountain bikes going downhill are great to watch. Did not use cafe but why not take a picnic and sit in the shadow of Ben Nevis. Bought a walking map for £1 from the ticket... More

Visited with my 6 year old daughter and we both really enjoyed it. Would probably recommend bringing your own food for when you're at the top. There is a cafe up there but the food wasn't great and where the cable car staff were really helpful the Cafe gave the impression they didn't really care and it was more just... More

Spectacular cable-car ride amidst the Ben Nevis range of mountains. Easily accessible by bus from Fort William and other places. Marvellous views at it ascends the mountain side. Restaurant and bar at the summit. Many place to walk or mountain bike (if you dare!). Great place to explore and enjoy the bracing, fresh air!

We visited this place and was disappointed, there was hardly anything up there after gondola ride. This is a probably a great ski resort during winder months, but not much of a tourist destination in summer (unless you plan to ride a bicycle down the mountain)

Wonderful time here, fun trip on the Gondola and absolutely breathtaking views from the top, with an obligatory hot choc in the restaurant :-)

Took the cable car up Aanoch Mor, breathtaking views, the clouds parted and we were treated to 360 panorama, absolutely stunning, and the hot choc in the Snowgoose restaurant was pretty good too!
