Fort William is most famous as being at the base of the highest peak of them all, mighty Ben Nevis. The town is also the gateway to Glen Nevis, one of the most picturesque of all glens. This leads not just along the foot of the Ben itself but past the stunning ridges of the Mamores and through the dramatic Nevis Gorge to Steall Falls – surely one of the most dramatic destinations for a shorter walk in all Scotland.Fort William is most famous as being at the base of the highest peak of them all, mighty Ben Nevis.
