Highland hospitality in the heart of Fort William

Fantastic food, great drinks, brilliant live music, stunning views and a warm welcome

The Ben Nevis Bar and Restaurant is at the heart of the bustling Highland town of Fort William.

Built in 1806 as an inn for cattle drovers, the award-winning Ben Nevis today attracts a vibrant mix of locals and tourists, drawn by its fantastic food, local beers and whiskies and lively atmosphere.

Newly refurbished with a modern yet traditional Scottish feel, the Ben Nevis has a fast-paced restaurant showcasing the best local produce and fresh seafood alongside hearty favourites – ideal for refuelling before or after the many year-round outdoor activities Fort William has to offer.

There’s also a cosy whisky bar, perfect for enjoying a dram from our impressive whisky range; and a stunning terrace offering spectacular views over Loch Linnhe.  

And our friendly team are always on hand to share local knowledge or a friendly chat over the bar!

Entertainment is a big part of the offer at the Ben Nevis, with regular pub quizzes and live music – the perfect end to a day exploring the gateway to the Highlands or tackling Scotland’s most famous Munro, Ben Nevis, after which we are named! 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Ben Nevis!
