Head of Glen Nevis, near Fort William

This postcard shows a group of tourists at Glen Nevis, just south of Fort William. The trail follows the River Nevis upstream and has impressive views of the nearby Steall waterfalls. Although used by thousands of tourists today, the trail has changed little over the years.

Glen Nevis is a typical u-shaped glacial valley and is among the Highlands' most spectacular glens. It is the starting point for the ascent of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which rises to 4406 feet
