... in the heart of the Highlands, offers scenic beauty all year long, but can be even more enjoyable after the summer tourist crush subsides in September.

Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, can be climbed by amateurs, at least part way, all year round and overlooks Scotland's most beautiful glen, Glen Nevis. Hill walkers of all ages and experience enjoy walking the West Highland Way. Scotland's best skiing is found 6 miles north at Nevis Range. Ride the gondola to the Lodge and ski any of 32 runs or walk the hills in summer. Even those who have never skied before can try it - ski hire packages are available at reasonable prices. You can even get a three night accommodation and travel package from Edinburgh (note - skiing is subject to snow conditions!).

On the way back from the piste, stop at the Ben Nevis Distillery for a free tour and drink of fine whisky. While recovering from the outdoors, visit the West Highland Museum, or enjoy the Spa and Massage at the Lochaber Leisure Centre, in Fort William.

Wind down at one of Fort William's many pubs, several with live music at the weekends, and all within easy reach of our comfortable and well equipped Hostel close to the centre of town.
