Hillwalking Glen Nevis - Scottish Walks.
Well, here we are, Britain's highest peak, the one they all want to climb and fortunately it's not too difficult. From the car park at the Visitor's Centre, the Ben Path starts across a bridge over the River Nevis and takes you along the riverbank for about a half mile then turns left alongside an open field
The path then starts to rise and you are on your way, onwards and upwards to Ben Nevis. Stick to the path and you'll be back in time for tea. Take your camera. Take a left from the Glen Nevis campsite for 100yds, you can pick up a path that goes through some forestry and then on to some open hillside. If you were walking the West Highland Way, north to south, then basically this would be the start.
|Here is a fine walk, although much of it is a forest walk, and will eventually land you in Kinlochleven. It is up to yourself how far you would wish to walk but a round trip to Kinlochleven would be around 14miles and relatively easy walking. 8-9hrs. Great views of the Nevis Range and the Mamores.|
