On the opposite side of Loch Lochy are forest walks, the Great Glen Way and cycle route along with the famous Dark Mile, used by Bonnie Prince Charlie in his escape after Culloden in 1746.

There is a fine museum nearby, dedicated partly to the Cameron clan (this being very much Cameron country), and partly to the Commandos, who trained in this area during the Second World War.

The nearest railway station, connecting with Glasgow and all stations south, is at Spean Bridge where there is also a Post Office, general store, two churches, 9-hole golf course, and restaurants, and there are other excellent eating places even nearer.

The modern facilities at this well designed ski area offer outstanding opportunities for a wide range of abilities and a great deal of fun in the snow. Highest run is 4,000ft and the longest run is 2km with 35 downhill runs.
A creche is available for 3 to 7 yr olds. Full equipment hire is available.
