great glenway and ben nevis

by stadimiri

hello
my wife and i intend walking the great glenway and then climb ben nevis. i have been told that the walk is better when done from inverness to fort william rather than the reverse. is this true?/ also we intend climbing the ben nevis after that> is this feasible? do we need to book in advance accomodation on our route and is there bus service from glasgow to inverness?
thanks
regards
captain srini

Buses from Glasgow to Inverness on this link:

http://www.citylink.co.uk/timetables.htm ( click on appropriate timetable button, opens in a PDF).

Whether you need to book accommodation in advance depends on when you are visiting, to some extent. If you are coming in the high season, it would seem sensible. If you are doing a long-distance walk do you really want to spend time looking for accommodation at the end of the day? You may end up walking a lot further (or paying for phone calls/taxis etc). Accommodation convenient for your route will, of course, be the obvious choice for other walkers........I'd book ahead, personally.

As for Ben Nevis, this too depends on when you are visiting, and on the weather. It is feasible, but you need appropriate clothing (proper boots and waterproofs at least) and know what you are doing; every year the (volunteer) mountain rescue teams have to find people who have got lost/injured/wandered up in sandals etc. Our mountains and moorland may not be particularly high, but our changeable weather can make them very treacherous indeed (even in high summer).

Travel Tips for Fort William

Belford Hospital - Life Saver

by scotlandscotour

If you have an accident near Fort William you are, in one way, lucky!

The local hospital is well staffed and equiped beyond the standard expected for such a remote and lowely populated area - it is the regional centre - but most of all -its needed!!!

The mountains around Lochaber (Fort William area) are some of the most climbed and testing in Scotland - and frequently produce accidents - whether hypothermia, a skiing crash or fallen climber.

I had the luck to test the services here, one summer, after a cycling accident where my head hit the road in splendid fashion. (On the Road to the Isles).

Don't add yourself to the waiting list. Prepare for the mountains, drive carefully on the left hand side, and travel safe. Best wishes - Malcolm

Ben Nevis

by sim1



The Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Great Britain (1343 m). You have to go up there, the view from here is great! In the winter it is a good place to go skiing. The ski piste just opened the day we were there, but I can't ski, so I didn't try. In the summer this must be a gorgeous area to go hiking. But with all the snow that didn't look like a good idea. The Ben Nevis is not far from Fort William and Glencoe.

Many wonders road

by tracylacie

There is a small road to the left as you head north out of Fort William...I can't remember the number...sorry.
Anyway, if you follow this road it will lead you to Neptune's Staircase and if you stay on the road it will take you all the way to the Glenfinnin monument.
It is a lovely drive and doesn't take but a few hours there and back.

Eilean Donan Castle

by Skibbe

This is the most photographed castle and was used in scenes from the "Highlander" movies. It was one of my favorites to walk around. Its been mostly restored to look as it did in the past and there are a number of artifacts displayed inside.

Look for the tree on the rock on the way up

by frank_delargy

When you drive on the A82 on the way up to Fort William try to notice the solitary tree on the moors. It sits by itself on top of a rock, protected from the sheep and deer.
This tree is a landmark on my many trips back and forth from Glasgow to Ft William.
When I got to the tree, it was literally downhill from there to Ft William, or from there to Glasgow.
My grandmother used to love to stop at the tree to marvel at it. I remember as a kid that the tree was very very small. Now, a few years later :) it is bigger.. but not much!
On one lovely evening I remember seeing a very large stag posing just below the tree and rock. That was the one time I didn't have my camera of course!
