Glentower provides access to various outdoor activities as well as providing a unique historic background. Observations began here in the middle of July 1890 and continued until 1904, when funding became an issue. During that time there was a continuous record of barometric pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, etc, by day and by night, both on the summit of Ben Nevis and at sea level.

Our house is the perfect base to explore the West Highlands and beyond, whether you are visiting for business or pleasure. Prices from: 33 per person per night
