Highland Itinerary

by LynnDobbie

I'm trying to plan a trip to include Fort William, Ullapool and the Isle of Lewis for a familt with one small child. Any suggestions for exciting things to do?

RE: Highland Itinerary

by Adelle123

It depends on what sort of things you enjoy doing, and the age of your child. Up here in Lewis there's plenty of sandy beaches, and of course the Callanish Stones. There's also a black house museum on the west side, and lots of fishing boats here in Stornoway. You may want to return via Tarbert-Isle of skye as there's plenty of beatiful scenery that way too.

Fort William terms itself the Outdoor Capital of the UK so if you enjoy outdoor activities you should be well catered for - lots of forest walks, cycle rides, gondola up Aonach Mor. There are castles, distilleries, loads of scenic drives etc.

I just hope that the weather is good for you!

The fish and chip shop in Ullapool is excellent - followed by a pint in the pub on the harbour front. Why not take a drive around the peninsular to Achiltibuie? There is a very nice hotel/pub there called the Summer Isles Hotel which does excellent food. There is also a very nice beach on the headland.

Depends a lot on when, how you are travelling, the age of your child and your budget. Four of us stayed in Fort William about three years ago and found it a good base for a few days. Plenty of opportunity for walking and touring. If your budget allows there's the Jacobite Express steam train journey from FW to the coastal village of Mallaig - see for times, prices and what you will see along the way. There's also a nearby cable-car ride up a mountain alongside Ben Nevis. We were also surprised to find a small ten-pin bowling alley in FW. Make your first stop the very good tourist information centre in the middle of town (cheap internet connections and help with accommodation). Also check out Hope the weather is kind to you!

Travel Tips for Fort William

Sheep Dog School

by Krumel

During the Highland Games in Fort William they also had sheep dog trials, and it was fascinating to see how the dogs worked as a team and each one knew exactly what to do. Well, most of them, anyway. At the end of the show the dogs herded the sheep into a trailer. When the door was closed one of the dogs still ran around the trailer like mad, and not matter how often the handler shouted "Clyde, sit!" he just would not calm down. The handler then explained that it was a young dog that is still getting trained in, and he was running round and round looking for the sheep. He could not understand where they had vanished to when they got into the trailer.

Spooky Loch Ness

by sim1

Oh, isn't this a spooky effect! I am at Loch Ness, there is a mist hanging over the lake, and the sun is trying to brake through the mist. In the distance we see two silhouettes.... they look almost like monks. Hmmmmm, I feel like I am standing at this lake hundreds of years ago. I try to spot Nessie, but of course for nothing. She is probably hidden in the mist grinning at me.... no way she will let me take her picture.

Watch Highland Cows

by Sileas

Nothing really special if you're Scottish but they just belong here. Highland Cattle are pretty common around Fort William.

Beware of the cows with calves, they can be quite aggressive when you come too close - and you don't want to see those horns any closer...

Glencoe and Rannoch Moor - Journey of a Lifetime

by scotlandscotour

This is about 30 minutes drive south from Fort William so is likely to be your route to or from the town.

Glencoe is the reason to be in this part of Scotland / the world, and Fort William is just the nearby main town and service centre.

Please don't rush Glencoe!!! Take an hour off from Fort William and add it to Glencoe.

Another film location for the latest Harry Potter, with Hagrid's house up above the Clachaig Inn (useful food and drink stop - shelter from midge and rain!)

Clachaig Inn - not the friendliest owners in the world. Go to the climbers bar (right hand side around the back, past the kitchens - honest!) for a more sympathetic setting, mountaineers and a wood burning stove - and food / beer / music.

Glencoe is cared for by the National Trust - Glencoe

Old Inverlochy Castle

by himalia11

Close to the river Lochy, near to the point where it runs into Loch Linnhe, you'll find some castle ruins. It was built about 1280 and the outer wall is left. The ruins are nothing special, we've seen much more interesting, but if you are there why not visiting it. There's no admission and as the castle is in the care of Historic Scotland there's even a plate with information about the castle.
