Achintee (Scottish Gaelic: Achadh an t-Suidhe) is a location in Glen Nevis in the Highland council area of Scotland. It is around 2 km south-east of Fort William and just to the east of the River Nevis.[1]

Achintee is the starting point for the "Mountain Path", the most popular route up Ben Nevis. The Ben Nevis Inn is within Achintee, at the end of a minor road.

The name Achintee is from the Gaelic for "the field of the seat".
