Attraction Information

The Nevis Range offers a great range of activities to suit all ages and abilities and open all year round.

There are 12 ski lifts, including Scotland's only mountain gondola, which transports you effortlessly in just twelve minutes from the car park to 650m, where you will find the Snowgoose Mountain Restaurant and the ski area itself. The beginner's area is literally a stone throw away from the top station, with a variety of easy runs for you to gain your confidence on! Friendly ski and snowboard instructors offer all standards of skiers and boarders the best learning experience possible. 

If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, Leanachan Forest offers visitors over 25 miles of forest trails to explore on foot or on bike, all with the stunning backdrop of Britain's highest mountain, waiting to be explored at any time of the year; all routes are graded from easy to expert so you can choose a route that matches your family's ability, from a short stroll to an extremely challenging walk.

A series of high ropes courses has been built in Leanachan forest and is ideal for your brave adventurers. The lowest course is 1.5m off the ground and the highest is 10m off the ground. Each course comprises a series of obstacles as well as a jump from 11m (Swoop) and a 100m zip. Kids from 5 years old are welcomed onto the lower course.

Plus The Mountain Discovery Centre, located at the gondola top station, was created with the objective of educating adults and children alike, about the wildlife, mountain habitat and landscape that surround us. So much to explore in this simply stunning location!
