Where to stay in Fort William

About Fort William

One of the largest settlements in the Scottish Highlands, Fort William lies on the eastern shores of Loch Linnhe. Serving as the gateway to Ben Nevis and the Steall Falls, Fort William is also the departure point for the famous Jacobite steam train journey to Mallaig.

Things to do

Explore the West Highland Museum, which features exhibits on local wildlife, archaeological finds and Highland life. Hear stories from the Lochaber Commandos, who served during World War II, and learn about the uprisings of the Jacobites. Afterwards, admire the Highland regalia gifted by Queen Victoria to her favourite servant, John Brown.

Fort William is a popular base for hikers wanting to tackle Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which towers at 1,345 metres tall. Less-trodden trails weave through the scenic Mamores mountains, with the Ring of Steall traversing four Munro peaks above the famous Steall Waterfall.

Soak up the views of Ben Nevis during a Loch Linnhe cruise, as boats depart the Fort William pier throughout the day. Learn about the natural and cultural history of the region through the lively skipper commentary while keeping an eye out for seals, porpoises and golden eagles.

Experience the spectacular beauty of the Scottish Highlands on the Jacobite steam train, which runs between Fort William and Mallaig. Travel to the most westerly railway station on the British mainland at Arisaig and admire the views of Loch Morar before arriving at the deepest seawater loch in Europe at Loch Nevis.

Getting around

Fort William is around 2.5 hours’ drive from Glasgow and three hours from Edinburgh, with the overnight Caledonian Sleeper train making the journey south to London. The town is small enough to explore on foot, but having your own vehicle is best for accessing the surrounding highland sights.
