Fort William

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.
