We came across this place on the drive between Loch Lomond and Fort William in Loch Awe and stopped there because we had some time and it looked interesting (always the best way to see things). It is a 19th century church located right on the loch with a rather Gothic feel to it. The location is absolutely gorgeous. It is also very quiet--no one is at the door so you get in for a donation and can also get a printed guide.
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.
The town marks the end of the West Highland Way, Scotland's oldest and most popular long distance walk: and the start of the Great Glen Way, the newest. The steady stream of footsore travellers coming into the town from Glen Nevis is a reminder of just how far the 95 miles from Milngavie, near Glasgow, can seem.
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...
These georgeous waterfalls are among the highest in Britain. There is a wire bridge in front of them wich you have to cross to get there! A bit of adventure included ;o)
There will be a photo as soon as I find one!
The peat track ia a rather unknown path from Glen Nevis to Fort William. It is really steep at it's Glen Nevis end so be prepared. But the hassle is well worth it: once you are up there you get the most stunning views you can imagine!
It is really to recommend when the snow has come or at sunset as you can see the sun go down above Loch Linnhe!
