If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground Leanachan Forest, situated on the lower slopes of Aonach Mor, offers visitors over 25 miles of forest trails to explore on foot or bike, all with the stunning backdrop of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
The 25 miles of alternative routes are there 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 ability, from a short stroll to an extremely challenging walk.
There are several viewpoints along the forest trails that offer breathtaking views of the scenery, Fort William and the surrounding area
Although not at the same vantage point that the mountain trails offer, there are several viewpoints along the forest trails that offer breathtaking views of the scenery, Fort William and the surrounding area, the hills of Ardgour and Moidart and the impressive overshadowing mass of Ben Nevis.
The Nevis Range base gondola station offers an ideal starting point for all of the above routes; there is a large free car park, toilets and the Pinemarten coffee shop.
