Paragliding

In recent years Nevis Range has become a popular destination for paragliders and hangliders. The gondola offers a quick and effortless ride to a take-off altitude of 650m from either the Sgurr Finnisg-aig or Meall Beag viewpoints.

Flying amongst Britain's highest peaks is a spectacular and challenging experience. All pilots are welcome to make use of the facilities; hangliders can use the freight deck to carry their equipment to the top station however prior notice is always appreciated.
