Yes, you can wild camp near Ben Nevis, but you must follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. Wild camping, also known as dispersed camping, is legal in Scotland, including in the Ben Nevis area. However, you should camp responsibly and adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Camp away from buildings, roads, and farmland.
  • Keep your group small and avoid staying in the same place for more than two nights.
  • Leave no trace of your visit, taking all litter and waste with you.
  • Respect the privacy and property of others.
  • Be considerate of other campers and the natural environment.

While wild camping is permitted, you may also consider staying at a designated campground near Fort William, such as Glen Nevis Caravan and Camping Park, for a more established camping experience.
