Glen Nevis

Nestled among the foothills of Scotland’s highest Mountain Ben Nevis the pinewood is a small remnant but set in such dramatic scenery it is a worthwhile place to visit.

The trails are well marked but require great care as they wind above the torrential waters of the River Nevis. From the Visitor centre at Achintee it is a long and steep climb up to the higher reaches of the glen where the pines can be seen on the steep slopes near the dramatic Steall Waterfall.
