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!

What an amazing experience this was. We have passed this many times and never stopped, but thank goodness we did. The views were totally amazing both going up and even more so at the top. A lovely cafe at the top. Stunning views and walks.

Recently stopped here to take the gondola to the top and view the surrounding beauty. What amazing views can be observed up at top when weather permits. There is a café up top that serves hot and cold food as well as a small bar. We were a group of 5 persons who took advantage of the views that day... More

Do not attempt a gondola ride on a windy day as strong winds do sometimes close the link. However, when you get to the Snowgoose restaurant/café you are afforded excellent views of the Atlantic and also other areas of the Western Highlands

We went up on the cable car and it was great, fantastic views and covered in snow. Had lovely coffee at the cafe at the top. A must visit location if in the area

It was very rainy and windy, which meant I couldn't really do the quick walks, or see much from the viewpoints. Still worth the gondola ride and scenery on the way up! Got to send a postcard from the "highest postbox in the western highlands" too! A little pricey, but neat trip!

We did this as an extra optional excursion on our Lochs and Glens holiday. It was great, got straight on, I am a bit nervous of heights but felt very safe in the gondola. Stunning views both on the way up and when we got to the top. Took some lovely photos and then had very nice coffee before going... More

If you want to see the view but have little ones with you, or your a tad lazy, the gondola trip up to the cafe is right what you need. Family tickets are reasonably priced, and the cafe is of a decent standard. Well worth a wander around whilst you are up there. Ideal for saving your legs and either... More

We visited mid week and we were able to get straight on a gondola and head up the mountain. Lovely views and a pretty walk along a path with a babbling stream next to it. Definitely worth making the effort to come up here. Delightful.

Visited today, which was a very cold but clear day. You could see the snow on top of the mountains. The gondola ride was great, although I do not do heights, felt comfortable. From the top the views were stunning. Wonderful staff in the cafe, very helpful. In fact all the staff helped, as partner has walking problems. Well worth... More
