I walked the trail in reverse (Fort William to Kinlochleven). Past the Ben Nevis Centre the track begins, climbing up on a gradual ascent along a logging road for about an hour. It is then gently undulates through the mountains with some amazing views along and through the valley. While relatively flat, it can be difficult underfoot in places because of water flowing across large segments of the track. You can pick your way over much of it thanks to the rocky terrain but those who are not reasonably sure of foot may struggle in wet weather.

This is hard but rewarding. Make sure you are prepared physically and have appropriate gear. The weather can change in an instant with high winds and can get cold quickly. Did I say this is hard? Not for everyone.

Mostly level walking. A little climb near end; then a winding drop down to Fort William.

We started up the Mountain Path which is crowded. At the “intersection” by a beautiful lake we veered down the valley to merge with the Carn Mor Dearg Arete which provided stunning views of Nevis and the valley. Plus you get another “Munro” after a 1600 foot scaling of the adjacent hill. The top of Nevis is cool but crowded and the walk down the Mountain Path is laborious. Great hike nonetheless!!!

A pleasant walk if you take a less direct approach to the summit of Carn Mor Dearg along the ridge. The steep climbs up from the valley as you get closer to the CIC hut are decidedly unpleasant- they’re a bit better in winter conditions. The arête makes the day and is great fun all year round.

A lovely ski tour or a slightly dull hike. To make the walk a 5* day add in Fiacaill Ridge on the approach.
