A land of magical glens and picturesque lochs with stunning mountain views, when it comes to exploring Scotland, it’s as much about the journey to the destination.
Beyond the cities, Scotland is studied with an astonishing number of ancient monuments, castles and legends in abundance. For example, you can delve into Scotland’s turbulent past at Inverary Castle or go in search of the infamous ‘Nessie’ at Loch Ness.
From the shimmering waters of Loch Lomond, to the unspoilt natural beauty of the highlands and everything in between, a holiday to Scotland is sure to leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
Fort William, the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, is not only an important tourist centre but also a splendid location from which to explore the magnificent Western Highlands. It is situated at the southern end of the Great Glen, on the shores of Loch Linnhe, beneath towering Ben Nevis , Britain’s highest mountain. For those who do not feel quite up to the ascent of Ben Nevis, nearby Aonach Mor offers Britain’s only alpine cable car rising over 2000 feet to the Snowgoose restaurant, from where there are spectacular views of the Great Glen. The surrounding countryside has some of Britain’s most spectacular scenery and its torrid history has produced over 30 battlefields in the Lochaber area alone. As a touring centre, Fort William is unrivalled and our excursions make the best of this with coverage of many of the area’s most interesting places.
