Park Fort William Scotland
A short course with great views into the towering North face of Ben Nevis.
Good smooth area, with lengthy high slopes throughout. The upper path is thin and can be slippery when damp.
1 ¾ miles / 2.8 km enable 1¾ hours
After the Allt a Mhuillin (the mill flow), this high road features fine views of Ben Nevis and Loch Eil. Britain’s greatest hill is specially impressive using this trail, whilst the menacing 2000 ft (610 m) high cliffs of this North Face tower above you. You may really see climbers tackling the challenging tracks throughout the rock face.
Beyond the stile the road gets in open hillside: you’ll require the right clothing and equipment because of this.
The River Lundy Trail from Leanachan passes through North Face. It’s a beneficial course for walking or mild cycling.
If you’re heading for the mountains, check out the path guides to Ben Nevis and Carn Mor Dearg at MunroMagic and WalkHighlands. They are difficult paths across open hill, without waymarkers: check always our advice on hillwalking before you trigger.
From Fort William take the A82 north for 2 ½ kilometers (4km). Change right within signpost for Torlundy to check out the Forestry Commission indications leading up a forest roadway toward parking within the Forest. The car park is at grid reference NN 145 763.
