Highland Cows at Glen Nevis, Scotland

This afternoon, with benefit of unusually sunny and clear weather, I took a trip down Glen Nevis ( valley of the River Nevis) near Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.

Key features of this glen are:

  • Bordered by twp ranges of mountains: Mamore Range to the south and Nevis Range to the north, including Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest mountain.
  • Close to Fort William, ‘Outdoor Capital’ of Scotland.
  • Marks the beginning/end of West Highland Way, a long-distance hiking trail which runs from Glasgow to Fort William.
  • Here can usually be found sheep and a herd of (photogenic) Highland Cows.
  • At southern end can be found Lower Falls, a scenic site which is popular with visitors.
  • Has been used as a film set. Here was filmed sequences from:
    • Various Harry Potter films.
    • Braveheart
    • Rob Roy
