What to do from Nevis Croft

Glen Nevis

Glen Nevis is a Highland estate in the midst of Highland scenery only minutes from Fort William. With walks by the river, mountains to climb, and unpolluted places of natural beauty, it is the end of the famous West Highland Way.

There are lots of wildlife to see including deer, buzzards and eagles. So whether you are into outdoor activities or just prefer to look at the view, Glen Nevis is a must on your Highland holiday.

Nevis Range - Aonach Mor Cable Car

The all mountain experience for all seasons! - The mountain gondolas run all year round and offer excellent access to the mountain of Aonach Mor, beside Ben Nevis for people from all walks of life. There are 25 miles of forest tracks are there to explore on foot or by bike.

Jacobite Steam Train - Fort William to Mallaig

Described as one of the great railway journeys of the world. This 84 mile round trip starts near the highest mountain in Britain, visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station, the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, and the shortest river in Britain and finally arrives next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe.

The train leaves Fort William at 10:20am and returns to Fort William at 4:00pm with an hour and a half in Mallaig. It is a great way to spend the day!

West Highland Way

The West Highland Way links Milngavie, just outside Glasgow, to Fort William in the Highlands; around 50,000 people walk parts of it every year. The West Highland Way is a wonderful out-of-doors experience and can be a satisfying personal achievement for those who undertake the adventure.

Ice Factor - Kinlochleven

As well as being the biggest indoor ice climbing facility in the world, it features the UK's largest articulated rock climbing wall and a competition-standard bouldering hall, making it the perfect place to practise, train and learn every conceivable mountaineering skill.

There are even things to do for people who have never set foot on a mountain!
