Go to the visitor centre (IonadNibheisfacilities) then take a gentle hike beside the River Nevis from the edge of town. Or if you’re game for a round-trip of several hours, go on to the upper glen. Here, Waterfall the fine Steall cascades into the river gorge beside old Scots pines, birch, rowan and holly trees.
