Your trip to Fort William

We'll admit, there's much more to Fort William than simply bagging Ben Nevis - although climbing the tallest mountain in the UK is, of course, quite a feat. Think pubs that stock the finest Scotch whisky, daredevil mountain biking that attracts World Cup aficionados each year, loch-side wanders and even trips abroad the steam train that took Harry to Hogwarts; it really is quite a town!

A town bursting with adventure

The outdoor capital of the UK, Fort William on the shores of Loch Linnhe is surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery. Famous for its hillwalking trails, mountain climbing, bike paths, and snow and water sports, Fort William is a mecca for adventure travel but taking it easy is also possible in this historic town. From walking to castle hopping to fishing, Fort William has plenty to offer those who prefer a slower pace.
