Ben Nevis resort master plan approved
A £25m master plan for the Leanachan Forest area of Ben Nevis has been given the nod by Highland councillors, paving the way for an 80-bed hotel and up to 50 holiday lodges to be built.

Backed by Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Forest Enterprise Scotland the Smith Scott Mullan designed scheme can now solicit investors to turn the vision into reality.

Scott Dingwall, head of regional development for Lochaber Skye and Wester Ross at HIE, said: "We have been working with Forest Enterprise Scotland to explore the further opportunities that Leanachan Forest offers.

"The approval of the master plan provides further clarity as to the development potential of the area from a planning perspective, and is a key element in presenting the opportunity to the market."

Leanachan Forest stretches across 4,000 hectares.

These lodges could be very nice and sensitive addition to the location, providing that they are well detailed and carefully located.
