There's much more to do: learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour, expand your understanding of the military at Fort George, explore the activities along River Ness, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

Fort William is the second largest settlement in the Highlands of Scotland with around 10,000 inhabitants – and the largest town: only the city of Inverness is larger.Fort William is a major tourist centre, with Glen Coe just to the south, Aonach Mòr to the east and Glenfinnan to the west, on the Road to the Isles. Change things up with these side-trips from Fort William: Castle Tioram (in Doirlinn), Glenfinnan Viaduct (in Glenfinnan) and Highland Titles Nature Reserve (in Duror). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the views at Glen Coe, tee off at Traigh Golf Course, kick back and relax at Camusdarach Beach, and take in the dramatic scenery at Steall Waterfall.
