Owner description: 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!

Friendly staff, quick efficient service. Good wholesome food at a very reasonable price. Stunning views of great glen and surroundings. . We enjoyed the cable car journey but as stated in other reviews the windows were quite scratched and dirty so it was difficult to get decent pictures from the cable cars. Overall a very enjoyable day out. Will definitely... More

I have tried to walk up Ben Nevis a few times but was defeated by the weather. This time the weather was perfect. Our friends are not walkers, so we decided to go up some of the way in comfort. The views up were wonderful. Once there we went on the two sign posted walks. These were easy going but... More

This time we found it a very enjoyable experience and would do it again. It takes... More

I have been on cable cars recently in Switzerland which reminded me that I didn't review this one when we visited in summer 2014. It is comfortable and not too expensive when compared with Swiss prices. There is not too much to do at the 'top' station which is actually quite low, It could benefit from a little museum or...

Staff at the gondola station were excellent with my husband who is a wheelchair user, they measured the wheelchair but it was to big so my husband was helped into gondola and we did a round trip which was lovely so thanks again for a lovely time

We were lucky enough to get a group discount which made the trip even more worthwhile. The view from the top (no it is not Ben Nevis) is good. Food in the café was very average and my Scotch pie was filled by a miser! The very good score excludes the café.

The cost of doing up the media range seems steep but it is values as it is used or regeneration and conservation of the area. The guided walk with the funicular is good. If you feel adventurous get a ordnance survey map you can walk all the way for free. But it us a long hike. The nevis range is... More
