Fort William is a major tourist centre with Glen Coe just to the south, Aonach Mor to the north and Glenfinnan to the west, on the Road to the Isles. It is an important centre for hillwalking and climbing due to its proximity to Ben Nevis and many other Munro mountains. It is also well known for its nearby famous Downhill Mountain Bike Track at Nevis Range and its connection to the West Highland Way from Glasgow and the Great Glen Way, a walk/cycle way from Inverness to Fort William through the Great Glen.

The surrounding rugged, yet beautiful landscape has been used as a back drop for many famous movies, including Harry Potter, Braveheart and Rob Roy. Another huge attraction is the very popular Jacobite Steam Train. Advanced bookings strongly advised

Historic Scotland
Scotland is steeped in history and enhanced by buildings from prehistoric dwellings and stone circles to abbeys, remote castles and palaces. From Fort William it is possible to visit many historic sites in a pleasant days return drive. Many of these sites are set off by the rugged mountain and sea backdrop and one can only wonder how different were living conditions and transport between each of these magnificent buildings. For more details visit Historic Scotland.

Below is a short video made by the owner of Calluna, Alan Kimber, cycling on the Caledonian Canal and Great Glen Way for Paramo with a friend of Calluna Dan Goodwin. Alan cycled from Cairo to Aswan with Dan along the River Nile. A distance of 950km.
