Nevis Radio is a “Community Radio Station” and we have been broadcasting since 1992. Our station is based at the Ben Nevis Estate in Fort William on the Scottish West Coast.
From here, we broadcast to the community and the surrounding region of Lochaber. These areas including Skye, Fort Augustus, Mallaig, Kinlochleven and all parts the Western Highlands. We are part also of the IRN News Network.
Nevis Radio is Lochaber's very own radio station, broadcasting twenty-four hours a day. Today we have forty shows with twenty-six presenters and are very proud to have both local and international listeners tune in each day on radio and through streaming from our website.
As a charity, we pride ourselves in serving and engaging with our local community. We aim to continue striving to meet the need of our listeners by providing an eclectic range of shows to keep you informed and entertained.

A bit of history
The station launched back in 1992 with Ski FM from the Nevis Range ski resort keeping daily skiers up to date with conditions on Aonach Mor.
It wasn't long until we realised the demand for a permanent broadcast, and the Nevis Community Radio Action Group was formed to raise funds and make a local radio station possible. Nevis Radio was awarded a full-time license back in 1994 and has been on the air ever since.
Remembering Willie Cameron, Station Manager
Everyone in Showstoppers was devastated to hear of the death of Willie Cameron. As well as being the Station Manager at Nevis Radio, Willie had been heavily involved with Showstoppers from the beginning as the Technical brain behind the Sound and Lighting desk. He was a pillar of calm and common sense and made sure, often with little preparation time that shows were well lit and micro phoned. He was often to be found up ladders, securing and taping wires. The Technical people are often the unsung heroes of any show until something goes wrong. Willie went about his job quietly and efficiently so that nothing ever did go wrong, we watched with despair as his illness gradually took him. It seems incredible that only 6 months ago he was up in the gantry making sure Annie Get Your Gun was well lit. Our thoughts go out to Linda and the girls, Tavish, Betty, and his parents. We have lost a good friend and a fine man.
