“stunning”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Weather to start with a little rainy but as the day went on it cleared giving stunning views.
Path a little rough to start with but got easier around half way up, bit too much discarded rubbish at the top which was disappointing. Was very busy on the way down with every man and his dog going up, the lads on push bikes didnt have much fun as kept passing them fixing yet another puncture and the pub at the bottom was just perfect for a wee drink before a taxi back to Fort William as i was shattered and rather foot sore.

“Nice mountain, great vieuws!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The weather was great so the vieuws were spectaculair. There were also a lot of bikers coming from the moutain. We good see from the cablecart. The dislike; if the weather is not so good the lift isn't working, thenyou can only climbe te mountain by feet.

“Hight and mighty”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The highest mountain in the British isle and the best place to hike in the Scottish Highlands. Very close to it is the beautiful town of Fort William. I like to go there any time of the year and I enjoy the sightseeing and the beauty of nature.
