Fort William & Lochaber

Fort William & the surrounding Lochaber area is the self-proclaimed capital of outdoor sports. Whilst Fort William is nothing to write home about architecturally, the outdoor scenery is majestic and overwhelming.


Activities

Walks

  • Camusfearna Bay

    The home to Gavin Maxwell where he wrote Ring of Bright Water and still a place of pilgrimage for visitors...
  • Steall Falls Walk

    A fairly easy low-level walk is to the spectacular 300 ft-high Steall Falls at the head of the glen. It's a popular walk, especially in the summer when the trail can resemble the queue for the Ladies at a Tom Jones concert, but this doesn't detract from its stunning natural beauty.
  • Am Bodach Munro

    These three peaks are on the main spine of the Mamores near the middle of the range.
