Latest forest information

  • Nevisrange Mountain Experience has closed until further notice. There is therefore no access to public toilets.

A nationally renowned hub of outdoor activities

Leanachan forest is popular for walking, running and gentle cycling, with miles of trails under the northern slopes of Ben Nevis.

There’s marvellous mountain biking here too: Leanachan is home to some world famous mountain bike events, but you don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the Witch's Trails.

Leanachan is an active working forest, producing large quantities of timber every year. We’ll post updates on the website about any work that affects the trails and you’ll find signs on site with details.
