Travel Tips for Fort William

Inveraray village

by sim1

A view of village of Inveraray. My friend Louise told me you could get the best fish and chips ever here..... Hmmmmm, that sounded delicious! But the shop was closed, so now I will never know :-(

Going home

by sim1

The 30th of December, it is time to go home....... but that wasn't as easy as it sounds.
The car of my friends broke down, and that on the 30th of December. Everything was closing because of Hogmanay (the New Years Celebrations in Scotland). I never heard about it, and wondered what it was all about. But a few years later, during the millennium, I celebrated Hogmanay in Edingburgh. And wow, those Scottish people now how to party!!! But that is another story.....

In the mean time we are here, with a broken car, no spare parts anywhere to be found in England. The repair shop was closing because of Hogmanay, and no rental cars to be found anywhere. We tried almost all day, phoning with the lease company of the car, and trying to find an alternative way to get to the south of England. But finally, early in the evening, we were able to rent a car.... what a day it has been!

But we had to get to Devon still. A very long drive, all the way from Scotland to the south. The journey wasn't easy, we got thick mist and and ice rain on parts of the journey. Finally, very very early in the morning and totally exhausted, we arrived at our friends house in Devon. Sigh, what a relief!

Cow Hill

by himalia11

We did not climb Ben Nevis but at least the Cow Hill... nothing really comparable considering that it only has 287 m! It was a "let's do a short evening walk" as suddenly there was bright sunshine. The "short walk" turned out to be a one hour walk uphill, but we were rewarded by the fantastic view from the top. And the way back was quicker as this was downhill!

We took the path from Upper Achintore and as we are lazy we parked somewhere in the housing area as high as possible. The path called "Peat Track" is signposted at the street, and you just need to follow the path uphill. It’s not steep, but it's 3,2 km to the top. At some point the path will join another path coming from Glen Nevis and from there it's 1,6 km to the summit. If you've finally reached it, you have a great view on Fort William, Loch Linnhe, Loch Eil and you'll also see the Lochy River and the Great Glen. And of course on the way up you can enjoy the views on Ben Nevis.

You'll find a map and information about the Cow Hill walks on a panel at Cameron Square, outside the Tourist Information Office.

Good for an overnight

"Bed & Breakfast in Fort William"

On a self-drive from Edinburgh, Fort William was a suitable place for an overnight stay after hours of scottish scenery.

This was the first place where sunshine shone into the windows.

The place is quite lazy after 8pm, with not many shops open, and food hard to find.

Lots of Bed & Breakfasts too.
