Unwittingly been doing this loop for years while staying at the Glen Nevis campsite. Can be a tough climb up the path from the hostel to meet the mountain trail, would recommend going the opposite way if you’d prefer an easier assent - either way walking boots are a must for grip. Great views and often a good chance to chat with people just coming off the mountain.

Great trail. If you go anti-clockwise the climb up is hard going but the gentle walk back down is worth it.

Great short hike! Completed this at dusk, beautiful after walk work. Incline is steep, I certainly took a few breaks on the way up. Would totally do this again!

First to Review

tough short sharp climb up to the Nevis path from the youth hostel, then easy walk down to the river and back to the hostel.
