The Nevis Range resort in the Scottish Highlands has unveiled plans to add a new feature to its existing facilities with the opening of an aerial ropes course.
Built in the Leanachan Forest by the main car park at the foot of Aonach Mor, the attraction will include a zip wire and trapeze and is aimed at families.
Nevis plans to open the course in time for the Mountain Biking World Cup in June, something that may enable those riding mountain bikes
on the course at any time to make a family day out of it thanks to the many facilities offered by Nevis Range.
These include skiing in winter, with the higher slopes and the top of the mountain bike
course both being accessible from the Gondola cable car system, which terminates 2,300 ft up at the restaurant and visitor centre.
As well as being a world class venue for those donning their cycling clothing
and a ski resort, the location is also good for those who like to put on their walking boots
and go munroing, as Aonach Mor (4,006 ft) and Aonach Beag (4,048 ft) can be climbed from the visitor centre.
