Fort William is the main town within the area of Lochaber. The town itself is situated at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. Visitors come to this part of the Scottish West Highlands to enjoy the scenery, the history, the outdoor activities, the sense of space and unspoiled landscapes

The breath-taking scenery has been used as the backdrop for many well-known films including Braveheart and Rob Roy, whilst the Jacobite steam train, which passes the bottom of the garden of Ravenswood daily in the summer months, takes you over the Glenfinnan Viaduct as depicted in the Harry Potter movies on its journey to Mallaig (described as one of the great railway journeys of the world). Enjoy a trip up Aonach Mor on the mountain gondola where, on a clear day, you can see for miles.
