Last week we took a break from our travels in London, and headed up to the Scottish Highlands for a little getaway. We stayed in Fort Williams and decided to take a day and spend it at the Nevis Range Mountain Resort.
We started off our day with a ride on the Mountain Gondola. I was skeptical on whether or not the kids would like it. Well let me tell you that they LOVED it. The ride itself was smooth and we loved looking out at the beautiful scenery.
The top of the mountain was my kids’ favorite area to explore. There were trails with little streams and mountain bikers whizzing by. There was even a tube slide that was included in the price of your Gondola ticket.
But probably the highlight of our visit to the Nevis Range Mountain Resort was the High Wire Adventure ropes course. The two kids and my husband did the courses and everyone loved it. The highlight of my day was watching the kids complete the different challenges.
There were several different courses you could choose. My daughter was too short for any of them except the Squirrel, the lowest of the courses. But she loved doing it over and over again. My son and husband on the other hand completed the Squirrel, Barn Owl, and Wild Cat.

Seeing my son (age 9) climbing in the trees and then zip lining down was amazing. He’s a nervous kid so for him to gather the confidence to complete it was a huge deal.

I can’t recommend a visit to the Nevis Range Mountain Resort enough. We had such a delightful day playing in the beautiful nature of Scotland.
Thank you to the Nevis Range Mountain Resort for providing a complimentary Gondola ride. All opinions are my own.
