There is plenty to see & do in the Lochaber area
Spean Bridge is an ideal base for touring the Highlands of Scotland and a great area for outdoor activities. We are just 4 miles from the Nevis Range Ski and Mountain Bike centre with Britains only mountain gondola taking you 650m up the slopes of Aonach Mor. For walkers ‘The Great Glen Way’ is nearby and we offer courtesy transfers for our guests.
For a great day out the Jacobite Steam Train is only a 15 minute drive away. It is one of the must do trips when visiting the Highalands, the train crosses the Glenfinnan Viaduct as featured in the Harry Potter movies.
Distilleries – Visit the Ben Nevis Distillery and enjoy the “Dew of Ben Nevis” at the visitor centre. Other distilleries you may come across are Oban, Tobermory, Dalwhinnie and Talisker.
You can cruise Loch Linnhe to view Ben Nevis and spot seals by taking a trip on the MV Souters Lass which departs from the pier in Fort William. Boat trips are also available at Glenfinnan where you can cruise down Loch Shiel and do some eagle spotting!
