Tourist Attractions in Fort WilliamAerial view of Fort william from Ben Nevis
Fort William and the surrounding Lochaber area is the gateway to the real highlands of Scotland, served by an overnight sleeper service to London. The town itself is dominated by Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland which is a worthwhile expedition to climb on good paths. The town also marks the South-western entrance to the Caledonian canal that leads through Loch Ness to Inverness. There are many sporting estates around the area with fabulous hill-walking and other outdoor pursuits, the steam-train Jacobite 'Harry Potter' railway to Mallaig and the North end of the West Highland Way.
There are 3 Museums in or around Fort William: The Commando Museum, The Treasures of the Earth exhibition and The West Highland Museum. Other attractions identified by Private House Stays for your consideration include the Jabobite Steam train excursion to Mallaig (popularly now referred to as The Hogwarts Express), The Well of Seven Heads feature on the A82 just North of Loch Lochy, The Confectionery Factory Visitor Centre and the links below
