This evening, I am in Fort William, a large town in the Scottish Highlands which is best known for its outdoor activities such as:

  • Hiking (West Highland Way).
  • Mountaineering (Ben Nevis)
  • Skiing.(Aonach Mor)
  • Mountain BikingĀ (Aonaoch Mor)

It is a good base for touring the Western Highlands with access to Loch Ness, Glencoe, Isle of Skye and Oban.

Outlander fans will be interested in site of the 17th century fort whilst Harry Potter fans will wish to travel on the Jacobite Express steam train (aka ‘Harry Potter Train‘) which operates in summer between Fort William and Mallaig.

Taking advantage of a dry evening with low numbers of visitors a took a stroll around the town taking photographs in the crisp light conditions.
