General

  • Peaceful park managed with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
  • Spectacular Highland scenery at the foot of Ben Nevis
  • Enjoy the views and fresh mountain air

What spectacular scenery is this, set in the Highlands at the foot of Ben Nevis, with fresh mountain air and forest footpaths winding... yes, we get a tad poetic when scribbling about the scenery of Scotland. But. Have a look at those site pics.

The vibe at Glen Nevis Caravan & Camping Park is of the peaceful and relaxed sort – pretty much a cert among scenery like this – and is in an award-winning, friendly and popular place about five minutes' drive from the town of Fort William. This is a topping location whatever your tastes: clambering mountainwards, biking through forest, walking by river and sifting through Scotland's history and heritage are all close by.

The Glen Nevis team takes pride in the neat landscape and tidy facilities of the park, which is set over 30 acres of grounds flanked by trees, hedges and shrubs.

And, as you like to see after a day clambering mountainwards, biking through forest etc, Glen Nevis Caravan & Camping Park also comes with a roomy and comfy bar and restaurant (pore over the old photos and the collection of antique kettles while you're there), and a cafe for guests to partake of an appropriately filling breakfast before a day out exploring or a lighter lunch before an afternoon stroll. Cakes, scones and pastries are always on sale too – something else we always like to see...

    The site is well maintained and has good amenities; campsite was well lit at night.
    Motorhome/caravan pitches were level.
    Staff were helpful and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Wifi was extra but signal strength & quality were excellent (believe our pitch was 30m away from Hub).
    There is a children's play area but it was outdated and could do with some improvement.

Beautifully scenic campsite with great facilties 17/10/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Sarah C. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We liked the beautiful location which is surrounded by mountains but handy for everything. There is even a shop on site for things you might need from milk to camping equipment to dog related items.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The toilet / shower facilities were clean and warm. The water taps and bins were very conveniently located.

    The location is great. We were very close to Ben Nevis for walking and also within five minutes drive to Fort William for shopping.

    We would definitely stay there again.

    Disliked: 

    We arrived in the dark and after reception had closed. However, we had received an email to say what to do if this happened and also there were instructions on the wall of the reception (outside) covering the same issue.

    We have no complaints about the site at all.

Local attractions

Indoors, outdoors, relaxed and active types are sorted here, with activities for all sorts easily accessible within a short drive.

Heading outdoors first (there's a reason why Fort William is nicknamed 'the outdoor capital of the UK'), walks, bike rides, snowboarding, watersports and a whole heap more are all close by. Glen Nevis and its surrounds are crisscrossed with forest and riverside walks for all levels and abilities – and don't forget there's a mountain to climb for those so inclined too...?

Cycle trails are also close to hand, as Fort William is a popular stop for cyclists and has nearby forests with networks of tracks as well as many purpose-built cycle paths. If you want to pedal further, lots of quiet roads leading to remote Highland communities are reachable on day trips.

Snowy pursuits? The slopes of Aonach Mor are open to skiers and snowboarders in the winter and have some smashing runs for snowy sorts of all levels.
Watery and more pursuits? Mountains, forests, lochs and the North Sea are all easy to get to from Glen Nevis Caravan & Camping Park, so curious Georges could try kayaking, go-karting, canyoning, salmon fishing or quad biking in the area among many more...

Less manically, take a Nevis Range Cable Car or visit the West Highland Museum a few miles from base to see the area's scenery and history, or go nature spotting in the surrounding area to look for red deer, pine martens, otters, red squirrels, dolphins, seals, grouse, golden eagles: the Highlands have a nicely diverse range of wildlife and boat tours/guided walking tours are available to spot it in several areas.

Also have a trip on the Jacobite steam train – yes, the one in the Harry Potter films – from June to September and from Fort William to Mallaig; and take a hike to Glenfinnan Monument, the viewpoint and visitor centre at the head of Glenfinnan telling all about the monument and the 1745 uprising. (Glenfinnan Viaduct is viewable from here; you might recognise it from the Harry Potter films too.)

For castles, have a look at Eilean Donan Castle on the road to the Isle of Skye and Inverlochy Castle, the ruins of which date back to the thirteenth century; and for canals, go to Neptune's Staircase and the Caledonian Canal linking Fort William to Inverness, with paths on either side to stroll along.

Must see

  • West Highland Museum (1.7 miles)
  • Ben Nevis Distillery (2.2 miles)
  • Nevis Range Cable Cars (2.3 miles)
