Billy visits Scotland – Way up on Nevis Range

The Nevis Range mountain gondola is the only one of it’s kind in Britain built on the north face of Aonach Mor which is the 8th highest mountain in Britain (1221 meters/4006 feet) located just outside of Fort William, Scotland.  It carries visitors to the ski slopes and the mountain bike trails but many take the ride up just to see the amazing views and to do some hiking which is what we did.

Ben Nevis is in the background of the image below.  That building on the left side is the Snowgoose restaurant (650m/2132 feet) where the gondola drops you off and you can either stay and take in the views from the restaurant terrace or go off on a hike.

The building on the left side in the above image is the Snowgoose restaurant (650m/2132 feet) where the gondola drops you off and you can either stay and take in the views, which are pretty spectacular, from the restaurant terrace or go off on a hike.

Nevis Range is not to be confused with Ben Nevis which is the highest mountain in Britain standing at 1,345 meters/4,411 feet above sea level but you can see part of Ben Nevis from Nevis Range. It takes about three hours, more or less, to hike up Ben Nevis so I opted for Nevis Range instead and a close to one hour hike there after being dropped off at the end of the gondola ride.

Our hike took us up to the Sgurr Finnisg-aig viewpoint that sits at 1067m/3500 feet where looking south you can look out over Fort William, Lochs Linnhe and Eill and all the way out to Eigg isle which is just south of Skye.  Yes! On a clear day such as this one you could see forever!

  3. That looks like a great place to visit for a goat or huma. I think goats are more accustomed to that terrain, though.
