Fort William, Scotland Cruise Port

Lying in the heart of western Scotland is Fort William, where Ben Nevis dominates the surrounding countryside, and the placid waters of Loch Linnhe stretch out for almost ten miles before it to the sea. This historic town is the gateway to the incredible Scottish Highlands, filled with vast heaths, towering peaks and the rich history of the Scottish clans.

Sightseeing in Fort William

Sightseeing around Fort William is dominated by ancient landmarks, from a choice of magnificent castles to vast ranges of hills and mountains:

Glencoe

Be sure to take a tour of the magnificent peaks and plains of Glencoe during your time around Fort William – giving you a chance to see the raw beauty of the Scottish Highlands in all their glory. Here you'll be travelling past the towering evergreens of Glenduror Forest on your way to see the secluded village of Ballaculish, before venturing on to the star attraction itself. Glencoe Visitor Centre was designed and built to be reminiscent of a traditional Highlands village – a complex of low-lying buildings half hidden in the trees, so as not to detract from the jaw-dropping scenery of Glencoe's sprawling heaths, and the Three Sisters peaks beyond.

Highland Castles

Various sightseeing tours will take you on a trip to see the remarkable castles dotted around the highlands – stark reminders of Scotland's troubled past, and the historic animosity between the native clans and English rule. Picturesque castle Stalker will likely be the first sight on your tour of the highlands, followed by the haunting ruins of Kilchurn Castle, standing by the shores of Loch Awe. The third castle on your trip will be Inveraray, a newer construction completed in the late 18th century, boasting fairytale towers and picturesque surrounding gardens – a landmark that will leave a lasting impression of your time in Scotland.

Ben Nevis

A sightseeing trip of the Scottish Highlands wouldn't be complete without seeing Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak, which attracts climbers and ramblers from all over the world. Take a coach ride out from Fort William into the surrounding country where you'll travel across Glen Nevis. Here you'll find the kind of dramatic, eye-popping landscape that's worthy of starring in Hollywood movies – after all, this is the countryside that provided the backdrop to both Braveheart and the Harry Potter films. Once you arrive at the foot of the mountains, you'll transfer to a mountain gondola the surrounding peaks, with magnificent vistas of the Nevis Range once you reach the top.

Shopping in Fort William

Visitors will find a great range of shops in and around Fort William. Go wandering in the highlands and you'll need the right gear before you set out, not least a sturdy pair of boots – and there are plenty of shops stocking outdoor gear. Alternatively, be on the lookout for a good bottle of Scotch; the perfect reminder of your time here.

Eating out in Fort William

There's nothing like a wander in the country to work up an appetite, and luckily there's no shortage of taverns, cafes and traditional pubs around Fort William where you can find a good hot meal. Many restaurants here specialise in modern interpretations of the Scottish classic, haggis – alternatively, warm your bones with a bowl of steaming Cullen skink soup.
