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!

“Halfway up the mountain!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

On a free day on our tour based in Fort William about half of our group opted for the Nevis Rang Mountain Experience. Travelling on the 41 bus from Morrisons we were offered a group rate for the cable car as there were 20 of us. THis was a real saving, even for the older members of the party. The views from the gondola were breathtaking and the staff helped my husband, who has some mobility issues, on and off. There was some snow at the top with many people skiing. Well worth the effort. Check before going as the day we were there the cable car cloed early (just after we had descended) due to high winds.

“Ski-ing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Limited snow cover, basic facilities and very icy almost dangerous conditions resulted in a no frills experience. The upside was that given the conditions more technical ski skills were practiced given the limited width of the piste

“A great place for views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Staying short disdance from the Nevis Range, I took advantage of the great weather over the week we spent near Fort William. At £11.00 a ticket (solo) for a gondola (return) its not cheap but worth the views. I've been on the range a few times over the years but with the weather being so clear, this visit made my week.
Cafe, smashing and nice coffee!
If you have a hour to kill in clear weather, it would be a shame to miss the views. On a cloudy day...ummm £11.00 per ticket, not so sure. My be a discount or free drink at top? Oh many thanks to the lady who lent me her camera to take some Raw format shorts, a must for large prints.

The staff were very helpful in suggesting the perfect walk for our ability/weather conditions and our available time. There was also a small information area with images and maps. Very useful and informative!
