Explore the forest all year round

If you’d prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground Leanachan Forest, on the lower slopes of Aonach Mor, offers you 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 routes are open all year and graded from easy to expert so you can choose a route that matches your ability, from a short stroll to an extremely challenging walk.

Although not at the same vantage point that the mountain offer, there are 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 Gondola Base Station offers an ideal starting point for all of the above routes; there is a large car park (£3 carparking charge applies May – October), toilets and the Pinemarten Cafe Bar.
