We visited the Ben Nevis Inn after climbing Ben Nevis and were not disappointed. This is a really quirky place with a real mix of people (we were there with visitors from New Zealand, Australia, Germany and more). There was a really friendly atmosphere with some really great traditional dishes (plenty of food and all served piping hot). The local... More

This bar / restaurant is such a welcome surprise at the foot of ben nevis. After a gruelling climb of Nevis in treacherous conditions this bar was a God send, the food smelled amazing and the beer went down a treat. The inside was trendy and the staff were professional. Would have loved to stay longer.

This place deserves all the 5 star ratings, I actually think it's my favourite place in Scotland! Delicious food, super friendly and helpful staff (the blonde waitress especially - sorry I didn't get your name) and inviting atmosphere. I'm a veggie and went for the beetroot and brie tart - my word it was the size of a dinner plate... More

We weren't sure the pub would be open on Thursday night late winter - not only open but serving incredible food and beer (Tradewinds, Cairngorm brewery for me.) While eating, musicians arrived and a jamming session began - foot tapping folk music and songs to join in with - the atmosphere was superb. We didn't want to leave, but having... More

Fantasy restaurant at the foot of Ben Nevis. My girlfriend and I both loved this restaurant so much so we went there a second time to taste their amazing haggis and chicken and ales. It's a cozy barn converted restaurant. It's warm and the atmosphere was great in both nights(Thursday&Saturday). The staff was friendly and helpful. When I requested the... More
