Some people believe that there is a mountain cable car or gondola ride on Ben Nevis there is no such thing.
In actual fact, Fort William's mountain gondola and all year outdoor activity centre Nevis Range
, is located on a nearby mountain called Aonach Mor - which is actually a good thing since this allows you to get a view of Ben Nevis from the top of Aonach Mor. Visit Fort William operates the original Ben Nevis Webcam which also has a preset image on the ski slopes of Aonach Mor and the top of the downhill mountain bike track. We've embedded an image below for your interest.
