Leave your car at the head of Glen Nevis, hike through Nevis Gorge and arrive at Steall Meadows where you can have a picnic and see Steall Falls (Scotland's 2nd highest waterfall).
A highly recommended walk to the Steall Falls. A there and back walk of 3.5km on a well-marked path. It is quite rough and rocky with steep drops, but can be done in walking shoes or trainers. After walking through the gorge, you enter a wide grassy valley with a 105m drop waterfall. For the brave…
A lovely lower level walk in Glen Nevis (over very uneven ground) will take you to view Steall Waterfall. Not suitable for small children or those with mobility issues.
We absolutely love walking through Steall Gorge at the top of Glen Nevis to the meadow with the stunning waterfall at the end of it. This is a great walk as you can make it as long or short as you need it to be. The rope bridge at the end also provides a fun challenge!
“Good views from the top of Cow Hill - if it's clear you'll see the top of Ben Nevis. Highland cows are normally to be seen on the walk too!”
“A thriving place to come for a great bar meal, or a great post-Ben climb pint. Usually busy, often has live music.”
“The food is amazing, attention to detail exemplary. Book in advance as restaurant is busy”
“Lots of whisky and ale options in the bar downstairs and the restaurant offers great tex-mex food. On Friday nights they have live music”
“Also know as Aonach Mor (the name of the mountain) this is one of my favourite places to ski in the winter and hill walk. The mighty Ben Nevis (UK's highest mountain) is its next door neighbour and I just love this place. The mountain gondola transports you to the top to access skiing in the winter, walking and mountain biking. If that all sounds a bit strenuous, then just go up for a bite to eat at the Snowgoose restaurant and admire the scenery. There's also a cafe at the base station too. It's a 1hr 45min drive from Inverness, but the journey - oh! You drive down through the Great Glen, past Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy - so although it's a wee bit of a haul, the scenery is breathtaking. I've done day trips to ski and walked here many, many times. You just have to get up early and get home late! A stop off in Fort Augustus for the best fish and chips is an added bonus.”
