Discover Fort William and its surrounding area

Welcome to Fort William and Lochaber

The outdoor capital of the UK and the largest town in the Scottish Highlands.Set on the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil, there is a real sense of countryside and freedom where visitors can marvel at the sheer beauty of the Nevis Range and Ben Nevis, as well as the Glencoe area and the Great Glen. The surrounding area also has more to offer than you could possibly imagine and is easily recognisable from films such as Braveheart, Rob Roy, Highlander, and of course – Harry Potter!
