A Tourist Attractions in Fort William

Photo - West Highland Museum

Situated in the high street in the heart of the historic town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, The West Highland Museum's collections tell the story of the region and its history. Our most renowned and unusual collection relates to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite cause.
But we also hold a wealth of curious and fascinating collections relating to less well-known aspects of the lives of the people of the West Highlands. Visiting The West Highland Museum couldn’t be easier. We are situated just off the main pedestrianised High Street in Fort William at Cameron Square, a ten-minute walk from both the bus station and the rail station. Street parking in Fort William is very limited but the town’s main public car parks are all within a 5-10 minute walk from the Museum.

Admission Rates:
Adult: £4.00
Concession: £3.00
Group: £3.00 per person (12 or more adults)
Child (12-18): £1.00
Child (Under 12): Free

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.
