We would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Fort William Mountain Warehouse for a donation of £311 from their customised tote bags. Mountain Warehouse chose Nevis Community Radio for their charity this year. The bags were sold in the local store with a donation from each sale being given to us.
When the largest cruise ship to visit Fort William arrived on Sunday 9th June, Nevis Radio were there with the Fort William Marina and Shoreline Company to welcome her.
We were invited on board this magnificent ship to meet the captain Mr Robert Froenbroek and have a tour of the ships facilities.
We were made very welcome and had a good time looking around. The captain presented us with a personalised model of the ship and allowed us to sound the ships horn to wake up Fort William.
The team at Nevis Community Radio Ltd are proud winners in the 2019 Lochaber VOSCARS.
These awards are nominated for by the public, and then the top 3 are selected by a panel of judges from Voluntary Action Lochaber.
We were nominated in the “Best Supporting Organisation” category, and announced winners at the award ceremony on Thursday 6th June at the Ben Nevis Hotel.
This is a big and very welcome award for the station as it is exactly what we hope we offer our community, that is, support and a vehicle for other groups and organisations to be able to publicise and report on their events and activities.
A huge thanks to those that nominated us and the panel for thinking us worthy winners.
We are very humble, and “CHUFFED” to bits!

We have been busy over the last couple of months at Nevis HQ.
The studio has a new ceiling and lighting, new acoustic tiles on the walls, new carpet, and to top it all we now have a temperature control system.
This major upgrade was made possible mainly to the Tesco Community Fund (blue tokens in store).
If you selected us as your charity – THANK YOU

On Friday 23rd November, Nevis Radio hosted the 2018 Christmas Town Gathering.
Here are a few Pictures & Video taken on the night featuring The Ancient Mariners.
To celebrate the arrival of new and returning students to West Highland College, Nevis Radio has spent the last week broadcasting from the venue itself. We’ve had a great time interacting with the students and the staff, even if most of them were too shy with us to chat with us on air. The college had such a buzz throughout Fresher’s week and we loved finding out about the different courses offered right on our doorstep, from Adventure Sports to Child Care and Cookery. It also gave us a chance to try out remotely controlling the studio from a laptop without anyone back in the studio, which was a great success. We’re itching to use this in different locations around the area now! Check out the pictures below to see what we got up to:
The outside broadcast team (minus Esme who cropped herself out and Jean who wasn’t there that day) AKA Ian, Simon and PARJAY.
Simon providing a soundtrack to Fresher’s week on his decks.
Jean getting down with the kids and having a blast!
A big thanks to the staff at West Highland College for asking us to come and for being such lovely hosts, we hope we helped make Fresher’s week even more special for the students!
On Thursday 10th August, once again we took control of airwaves from the Snowgoose restaurant at the top of Aonach Mhor with another ceilidh. Continue reading “Second Live Ceilidh Session from Aonach Mhor”
The last little while has been particularly frantic in the Nevis Radio studio but we hope our hard work has led to some positive changes. Continue reading “Busy times for Nevis Radio”
As part of Nevis Community Radio Limited’s on-going commitment to becoming more sustainable, a joint project has been undertaken with GFG Alliance, the new owners of the aluminium smelter in Fort William, to relocate one of their four transmission sites .
Along with our shiny new page optimised for phones, tablets and any other internet enabled device we have opted to utilise Mixcloud for our interview content opposed to the restrictions from Soundcloud.
We have been hard at work in the studio building a brand new up-to-date and mobile device friendly website.
This section will allow you to keep up with what we are doing and have been doing at Nevis Radio.
From local events and news to updates about what we’re up to at the station- we aim to keep you in the loop here.
