Fort William, Ben Nevis and Glen Coe

The town of Fort William is in the western Highlands, at the head of Loch Linnhe and at the foot of Scotland’s highest peak, Ben Nevis. The town is in the heart of the district of Lochaber – self styled outdoor capital of the UK. Fort William is the perfect base for walking or climbing on Ben Nevis; exploring countless other peaks and glens; skiing or mountain biking at the Nevis Range; exploring film locations such as the famous Glenfinnan railway viaduct that featured prominently in the Harry Potter films, and much more.
