Scenic Glen Nevis – used as a filming location for Braveheart and the Harry Potter movies – lies just an hour’s walk from Fort William town centre. The Glen Nevis Visitor Centre is situated 1.5 miles up the glen, and provides information on hiking, weather forecasts, and specific advice on climbing Ben Nevis
Glen Nevis (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Nibheis) is a glen in Lochaber, Highland, Scotland, with Fort William at its foot. It is bordered to the south by the Mamore range, and to the north by the highest mountains in the British Isles: Ben Nevis, Càrn Mor Dearg, Aonach Mòr, and Aonach Beag. It is home to one of the three highest waterfalls in Scotland, Steall Falls, where the Allt Coire a’Mhail joins the Water of Nevis in the glen. Below the waterfall is a steeply walled and impressive gorge.
