Fort William & Glen Nevis
Fort William nestles between Loch Linnhe and the steep slopes of Ben Nevis
Fort William is the main town in Lochaber, providing the bulk of accommodation and services for the area. Things to do in Fort William are certainly not thin on the ground, with activities aplenty for visitors.
Glen Nevis and the start of the Ben Nevis path are only 5 minutes away from the centre of town, allowing you to explore this famous and picturesque glen from your Fort William and Glen Nevis accommodation.
From the magnificent Steall falls at the head of Glen Nevis to the ancient vitrified fort on its side, there is a wealth of things to do. It goes without saying that the start of the Ben Nevis footpath is here, with the very good Glen Nevis visitor's centre at the bottom, providing practical information for those attempting the hill, alongside the fascinating history of the highest mountain in the UK.
Fort William provides the ideal base for a holiday - from here you can take a cruise to Seal Island, catch the steam train to Mallaig, taste the "Dew of Ben Nevis" whisky, and shop for that essential outdoor kit to name a few.
The town boasts stunning views down Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil, and north up the Great Glen fault. It is dwarfed by the Nevis Range mountains with the ski area on Aonach Mor a short 10 minute drive away.There are also some great campsites and hostels in around Glen Nevis. You can search this website for more information on the best places to stay.
