Over fifty POIs are listed in the glen searchable by category and text. These can be viewed on the glen overview map and filtered by search criteria. Each POI includes an image, Gaelic translation (where applicable), full information and quick facts. The POI can be shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter or email. The POI map location can be viewed. The POI can be saved and viewed in favourites.

The My Glen Nevis (MGN) area shows Nevis Memories and POI favourites. Photos taken with MGN are geotagged and can be later shown on the map. Notifications prompt the users to photo opportunities. Nevis memories can be shared again via Facebook, Twitter or email
The Nevis Gallery showcases dozens of high quality images from local photographers. The gallery can be swiped through or opened as a slide show.
