The Possibilities of Fort William

One of the key areas to consider in your visit to the Highlands of Scotland is Fort William, which is the second largest town and a gateway to some of the best hiking trails in the country.  With such a nearness to Ben Nevis and other Munro mountains, you’ll be in the prime location to lace up your hiking boots, pack your sack, and head to the trails for the rest and reconnection with nature that you need.  The Great Glen Way begins here and invites both hikers and cyclists alike to come enjoy the challenge and solitude of being up close and personal to some of the most spectacular scenery in the entire world.

Festivals and Celebrations

No matter what your sport of interest, you’ll find an activity in which you can engage at Fort William.  This town has been the host to a myriad of downhill biking events, as well as motorcycle trials held each May.  There are two shinty teams, a football team here, and a yacht club that hosts many events for sailors of all levels of expertise.  If you prefer, you can count on your own strength and endurance to take you deep onto trails that challenge your mettle and test your abilities; you can also meet many new friends along the trails of Fort William.

Establish Your Base Camp Early

Because Fort William is becoming a tourist centre, you’ll want to book your accommodation early so that you and your family won’t be disappointed.  Perhaps you’d enjoy a loch side hotel that provides you with breathtaking views and easy access to town.

For a holiday that takes you back to the great outdoors in Fort William where you’re sure to find everything that you need for an exceptional experience, be sure to plan ahead and review all of the activities that are available for you and your family.  You’ll have plenty of options for outdoor sports in which you can engage to rejuvenate your spirit and renew your zest for doing an outstanding job in your work environment.  Come; let the fun begin in Fort William Scotland.
