Fort William is located on the banks of the magnificent inlet Loch Linnhe and towered over by majestic mountains. The town dubs itself the “outdoor capital of the UK” and for good reason. If you make your way up Ben Nevis, you can look down on Britain from atop the country’s highest mountain at 134 meters high. The Glen Nevis Visitor Center can provide you with useful information about walking trails, environmental guidelines, as well as a display on local wildlife. Nearby Nevis Range offers skiing as well as a competition-class mountain biking trail that was the venue for the 2008 mountain biking World Cup. The West Highland Museum has a large collection of life in the Highland area. The Ben Nevis distillery offers tours followed by samples of its whisky.
