Where are the unique attractions in Fort William?

Local excursions

Fort William holiday cottages provide the perfect base to go off and explore more of the Scottish Highlands; only a short walk from Fort William is the famous Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles.

There are a number of paths of varying difficulties to the summit - the easiest is the 'Tourist Track', also known as the 'Pony Track.' For more experienced hill walkers, there is a route beginning near Torlundy, reached by travelling a small distance north-east from Fort William. Summer is the best time for holidaymakers to make the ascent; it is recommended that only more experienced, well-equipped walkers should attempt the climb during winter and early spring.

Just over 11km south-east of Fort William is Steall Waterfall, Scotland's second-highest falls. At around a 20-minute drive from Fort William, the waterfall is popular with those in search of natural beauty and a scenic walk. Walking boots are strongly recommended when exploring this area, but the walk is certainly worth it for the beautiful views surrounding this waterfall at its location in Glen Nevis.

A must-see stop within easy reach from most Fort William holiday lettings is the Glenfinnan Viaduct. Appealing to both scenery lovers and Harry Potter fans (it was one of the series' standout filming locations) the Glenfinnan Viaduct is an great attraction for adults and children alike.

For visitors with cars, it only takes around 25 minutes to reach the railway viaduct to witness its scale from a distance. For those that want the true Harry Potter experience or just a journey with a beautiful view, travellers can take the train from Fort William to Mallaig and journey along the Glenfinnan Viaduct itself.

The views given by the train journey are worth the trip, and Mallaig is host to a small number of pubs and restaurants for visitors venturing to the end of the West Highland Line. After an exciting day out on one of Scotland's most beautiful train journeys, you can return to your Fort William holiday cottage to relax. In your comfortable self-catering accommodation, you can share a home-cooked meal and fond memories of your trip.
