Dun Deardail Walk in Glen Nevis - winter or summer
Dun Deardail is the location and site of an iron-age vitrified fort in Glen Nevis. At 1,165 feet above sea level, it is an easy and enjoyable walk.
This is an easy, to moderate walk of some 7km with stunning views over to Ben Nevis and to Stob Ban and the Mamores. Once at the site the view looking down into Glen Nevis is almost alpine and quite superb. On the way back down you can make your way to the Lower Falls and then walk along the road in the glen to your car. On the way you will pass Cafe Beag and Glen Nevis Restaurant - which we recommend as one of Fort William's good restaurants and bars.
A cold, dry winter period, brings out the best in our mountains and glens. There's nothing more beautiful than to see snow-clad trees with a mountain standing in the sunshine behind. The views in winter are stunning and the walk is relatively easy, although you should take extra care with ice and snow around. You can download a Walks in Glen Nevis leaflet in PDF format.
