Fort William to Glenfinnan

The small passenger ferry from Fort William to Camusnagaul provides a sense of occasion to the start of the route to Cape Wrath, though immediately turning south upon disembarkation is a little cruel! This leg begins on a quiet A road along the Ardgour peninsula and Loch Linnhe before heading through Cona Glen to Glenfinnan.


Surfaced minor road, good estate tracks and rough, rocky footpaths.

Public Transport

Fort William is well served by both rail and buses from Glasgow. The small passenger ferry from the town pier leads across to the start of the walk at Camasnagaul. Glenfinnan is linked to Fort William by train and bus.
