- 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...

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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.
