Treslaig Hill

Eco Friendly Adventure

A fantastic day out for families and friends.

The views back to Fort William and Ben Nevis are worth the climb.

Landing on the other side our walk will begin with a gentle stroll through the Crofters Wood.

Rejoining the road we will take the track up Treslaig Hill. Reaching the summit the views are expansive in every direction with Ben Nevis looming above Fort William. If time allows there's the option to include the nearby summit of Meall an t Slamain.
