Kinlochleven in recent days has probably been best known to walkers of the West Highland Way as the last stop before you reach the end at Fort William. It is however rapidly becoming the place to visit if you are a climber or winter sports lover. First it has an idyllic setting at the end of the beautiful Loch Leven with the Mamores mountains overlooking it and positioned between Glencoe and Fort William.
The village used to be drab and uninviting but has been undergoing a transformation in recent years and is now well worth stopping at and enjoying the hospitality and the views. For those outdoor enthusiasts a trip to the Ice Factor Sports centre is a must. Inside you will find a huge articulated rock climbing wall and the world’s largest indoor ice climbing facility.
