Sitting in the shadow of Britain’s tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, the bustling Highland town of Fort William and the magnificent nearby valley of Glencoe are a dream destination for lovers of the great outdoors.
Fort William is known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ and opportunities for scenic walks are endless. The town is the end point of the legendary West Highland Way, while the Great Glen Way begins from here. For a more leisurely experience, board the world-famous Jacobite Steam Train and travel over the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct to Mallaig – truly one of the world’s greatest railway journeys.
Nearby Glencoe is revered for its rugged mountains and dramatic waterfalls, as well as the tragic tale of the Massacre of Glencoe in the 17th century. Delve into Scottish history in Glencoe village, follow in James Bond’s footsteps with a road trip through Glen Etive, or explore the region on foot and immerse yourself in some of Scotland’s most breathtaking landscapes.
