Set in a beautiful location at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's largest mountain, and overlooking the tranquil Loch Linnhe, the bustling resort of Fort William is the ideal base to visit to enjoy Scotland's stunning scenery. It’s also a great place to enjoy some spectacular walking, whether a novice or more experienced.
Embrace the wonderful fresh air as you discover the region's mountains, coastline, lochs and glens. One of the largest towns south of Inverness, Fort William offers a host of possibilities for the visitor.
Choose to explore the Lochs and Glens or perhaps take a journey on what is commonly known as 'The Greatest Railway Journey in the World', due mainly to the stunning scenery. The 84 mile round trip will take you past Britain’s highest mountain, deepest Loch, shortest river and most westerly station en-route to Mallaig, one of the world's most picturesque fishing villages.
