Ben Nevis and our WebCam
Many people stay at Woodside when they visit Fort William to climb or walk up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. Woodside is only 2 miles from the mountain car park in Leanachan Forest, and 3 miles from Achintee or the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre, where many people begin their climb up Ben Nevis. We can arrange both accommodation and a mountain guide if you would like us to.
As you can see from the photographs, we are very close to Ben Nevis and it’s an easy walk from Woodside to the North Face car park, where you can access the Alt Mhuillan trail which leads to a fantastic vantage point at 1,000 feet, overlooking Fort William below and into the North Face cliffs and crags of Ben Nevis.
We have a live webcam which shows images of the mountain throughout the day and often provides stunning images – particularly in the afternoon when the sun goes into the west and lights up the North Face. We never tire of our mountain view and we think you’ll enjoy it too!
