Walks to Mountain Viewpoints

Walking back from Meal Beag mountain viewpoint

The mountain habitat on Aonach Mor is unique, and what better way to explore the flora, fauna and wildlife, than on foot.  Venture along one of the established mountain trails, which lead to panoramic viewpoints, and splendour in the spectacular views, which on a clear day can extend as far as the Inner Hebrides.  Both mountain trails are signposted and start at the gondola top station.  Both are relatively easy walks enabling all our visitors, young and old alike, to enjoy and appreciate the experience and the true magnificence and ruggedness of the Scottish Highlands.

Sgurr Finnisg-aig

The walk to Sgurr Finnisg-aig is the shorter of the two trails, taking approximately 40 minutes return. This is an excellent viewpoint, which looks out across the Great Glen and Hills of Knoydart, you can also look back to the impressive overshadowing mass of Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis.

Meall Beag

Meal Beag is a slightly longer trail, taking approximately 1 hour return. This trail leads visitors in the opposite direction from where the views across Loch Linnhe, Loch Eil, the hills of Ardgour and Moidart are simply stunning.
