Fort William

Fort William is the largest town in the highlands of Scotland. It is near Ben Nevis which is the highest mountain in the UK and it is a well known tourist centre.

Glencoe is also close to Fort William. The Jacobite Steam Train runs from the main station at Fort William and the town is known for its excellent hill walking and climbing activities.

Fort William is situated on the shore of Loch Linnhe which consists of sea water and not fresh water. It is also beside the mouth of the rivers of Nevis and Lochy.

Visitors are more likely to have lasting memories of the lochs, rivers and mountain views rather than of the town. There is plenty to see and do around this area of Lochaber.
