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! « less

The gondola provides a great alternative route up if you dont fancy a hike. There are then two pleasant trails to walk that give excellent views. The restaurant offers good choice and reasonable quality. We spent three hours here and it was good value for it. Ample car parking for any size of vehicle. Recommend sturdy footwear on the trails.... More

We really enjoyed going up the range in the gondolas. The views were breathtaking. We went 1st thing in the morning to avoid any queues. The coffee in the café was the best I have had in Fort William. My partner loved the hot chocolate. Would highly recommend a trip up the range on a visit to the area.

I appreciated being able to go up near the mountains without the effort of walking all the way!The walks from the top station to the viewpoints give glorious views without too much effort.There's the added attraction of watching cyclists going down the scary mountain routes.It's well worth the trip.

Downhill track might be top notch but the other prepared tracks did not live up to my expectations. Bike rental also fairly expensive and only whole day option available. Would also like to see short / medium travel full sus option available.

We took the gondola up the mountain and then hiked up the trail to a viewpoint. We had a lot of fun and the views were amazing!! We also got some tasty hot chocolates and cookies in the restaurant up top. It was slightly drizzly that day and a bit windy, I'd recommend wearing a water/wind proof jacket.

Decent ride up and good views, windows slide down to take pictures without having to go through the plastic. Went 11:30 on Monday 1st Sept no queues at all. Watch the mountain bikers come down the steep slopes and tracks as you ride up. Cafe at the top, shop and a free blow up ring ride down a slide. Trip... More

We loved the Gondula ride up the mountain. The windows are a bit scratched and could do with replacing so you can take better photos! Once at the top there are two walks to take them photos! It was rather blustery at the top so wrap up well. We loved watching the crazy bikers hurtling down the crazy paths! A... More

Went up on the gondola at about 10.30 am and there were no queues or wait for a car even on a clear day with good visibility. The gondola takes about 15 minutes to get to the stop off point during which time you can take in the views and stare in amazement at the people heading down at rapid... More

Have visited here about six years ago and was nice to return and visit the range again. Took the cable car to the summit, and was a little disappointed this time. The windows are sealed closed and the main windows are in such poor condition with scratches etc makes taking pictures etc difficult. Has a nice cafe and bar on... More
