Fort William Travel guide
Fort William : Michelin's recommendations
Fort William lies on the shore of Loch Linnhe and at the crossroads of several routes, in the shadow of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. It is Lochaber's main town and grew up around a succession of forts and fortresses, strategically located to the south of the Great Glen. In summer, the town attracts visitors as it is the ideal starting base from which to discover the beautiful surrounding landscape.
