Fort William and Lochaber


Fort William and Lochaber are the Outdoor Capital of the UK.

Fort William itself is at the heart of Lochaber, close to the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak, whilst to the south is Glen Coe, a mecca for hillwalkers and mountaineers.

The other parts of Lochaber are no anti-climax. The region becomes wilder and less visited to the north, culminating in the peninsula of Knoydart, one of the most rugged parts of Britain. There are softer landscapes too, from the popular lochs of the Great Glen to Ardnamurchan and its fabulous sea-scapes.

Our walks cater for all tastes from easy family strolls, through longer, wilder hikes to ascents of the rugged mountain summits. The site also features accommodation listings, including hotels, self catering cottages, and hostels, as well as an online shop for local books and maps. Each route is downloadable to GPS devices in either GPX or QUO format.
