This is one of the best camp sites I have ever stayed on. It was beautiful weather we climbed Ben nevis on the 4th of May one of the sunnist clearist days you would wish for. the staff were polite friendaly and helpful the site was immaculate and not really busy atall it was a totally magical stay the scenary was out of this world so much to see and do in the area I could have stayed forever thank you very much Ronnie and Dave Bray: May in 2011
This was a very large site on our arrival the reception was very busy as it was throughout our stay. Staff were very friendly and efficient; we had paid a deposit for our pitch so glad I did as the site was full.
The pitches run around a central grassed area where children and parents could play or have a BBQ. The site is well spread out and does not feel as big as it is although the tent field did look crowded.
The facilities were plentiful and pleasant with piped music. Toilet and shower block clean and never anywhere near full. The shop is well stocked and a refreshment van is open on an evening for take always.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and the setting of the site is wonderful cloud willing you can gaze up at Ben Nevis. Fort William has plenty of shops; Morrison’s next to the railway station is well stocked and cheap.
The road up the Glen is worth a drive and when you can go no further walk another mile along the well trodden path to a most beautiful waterfall. Neptune’s staircase is a marvel of engineering the list goes on and on.One of the best sites I have stayed on anywhere.

This caravan park lies about three miles north of Fort William, along Glen Nevis itself. Its wide, flat, entrance road leads to the modern and well-appointed reception buildings, with a roomy waiting area for motorhomes. This large and exceptionally well-run park provides separate fields for caravans, motorhomes and tents, and is screened by trees, hedges and shrubs to give a cosy atmosphere.
The camping and caravan park is part of a larger complex which includes holiday homes and chalets, which are located in separate fields.
On the park, you'll find yourself surrounded by mountains, tall forests and lush meadows which contain a wealth and variety of wildlife. You can enjoy a stroll by the River Nevis or explore winding forest tracks. If you are feeling energetic, you can follow mountain paths and enjoy spectacular views from the top over the whole area.
A variety of pitches are available for motorcaravans, including grass or hard standing, and from basic to fully serviced (electricity, water and drainage) with car parking beside each unit. Additional services are discreetly positioned around the park.
The needs of motorcaravanners are well catered for with the provision of a purpose-built drive-over service point which offers facilities on both sides of the vehicle for the disposal of waste water.
Disabled campers have private facilities with full wheelchair access, including a shower. The laundry is well equipped with washing machines, tumble dryers and ironing facilities, as well as sinks for hand-washing clothes. Sculleries provide food preparation areas and washing-up sinks.
The park has its own spacious, comfortable, restaurant and lounge bar, which is not far, even from the furthest pitch. Or, if you prefer, there is a snack-bar trailer, which serves a variety of take-away food.
Glen Nevis Park enjoys a magnificent location in one of Scotland's most famous glens at the foot of Ben Nevis, and offers all the ingredients for an ideal touring holiday. This is a peaceful park in which to relax and enjoy the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and there are plenty of attractions nearby, too.

As you would expect of a site which rests beneath Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, Glen Nevis Caravan and Camping Park enjoys some terrific scenery. It’s perfect for those in search of active pursuits, or those just wanting to do a spot of sightseeing.
Sheltered in the glen just outside Fort William and surrounded by rugged peaks, the site is made up of eight fields covering 30 acres, with separate fields for caravans and tents. Of the 250 touring pitches (all of which are level), 200 have electricity (13A) and 100 also have their own water and drainage.
Four modern toilet blocks are placed discreetly around the park, with excellent washrooms including hot showers that cost 20p a go. There are well-equipped laundry facilities, and a scullery for preparing food. Disabled visitors are well catered for, with good facilities in the toilet blocks. Super-pitches with their own water and waste, as well as electricity, can also be reserved.
The site is incredibly popular during peak months, and the atmosphere can be somewhat bustling, but it is never noisy or intrusive. The reception staff are fantastic, and we found them very helpful. They all know the area inside out, so you’ll never be at a loss for something to do.
Visitors can explore the Glen Nevis Estate’s 1000 acres with its miles of walks, best of which is the eight-hour round trip to the top of Ben Nevis. Among the glens are waterfalls and an Iron Age fort. Other local attractions include a whisky distillery, animal parks and Neptune’s Staircase, a system of locks on the canal connecting Lochs Linnhe and Lochy. You could also take the delightful road to Mallaig where there are ferries to Skye. Glen Nevis is a most attractive location. If you can’t find peace and quiet and spectacular scenery here, you won’t find it anywhere.
