Using the gondola ride to the top of Aonach Mor in the Nevis Range was a brilliant experience. Price was fair, the cafe at the top was excellent, staff helpful.

riverside walk has been levelled from a new bridge. All very lovely. Then took a drive up the glen past the youth hostel to the waterfalls. Lots of picnic places and little traffic or people.
