The Nevis Landscape Partnership, Lochaber Environment Group and Shiel Busses are looking at the feasibility of trialling an enhanced bus service up Glen Nevis during the summer months when visitor numbers are high. Our aim is to maintain access to the area whilst reducing the high volume of car and campervans journeys up Glen Nevis and the associated congestion, pollution, parking and verge side erosion issues which are becoming an increasing problem.

This bus service is one of a number of strategies to encourage people to access Glen Nevis without a vehicle where possible. Other strategies currently being developed are improved walking and cycling routes, all-ability paths and e-bike share schemes to enable people to have a peaceful, stress-free, pollution-free experience in nature.
