Known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, Fort William is one of the most popular destinations in the breath-taking Scottish Highlands. Situated on the shore of Loch Linnhe, the town is the gateway to Ben Nevis – Britain’s highest mountain, and Glen Nevis, home to Steall Falls.

The stunning surroundings attract visitors from around the globe and many visit the town to take advantage of the fantastic skiing, snowboarding and mountain bike riding. The glen has proved popular with movie makers, with Braveheart, Rob Roy and Harry Potter movies filmed there.

The town itself has plenty to reward visitors too, including beautiful centuries-old churches, the historic Old Fort – first built by Cromwell in 1654 – traditional pubs and fine restaurants that serve locally-sourced seafood. In nearby Corpach, the Treasures of the Earth Museum offers one of Europe’s finest collections of crystals, gemstones and fossils. The historic Neptune's Staircase is a lock system comprising eight locks on the delightful Caledonian Canal, and a popular attraction.
