Places to eat & drink in Fort William.

The largest town in the Highlands, Fort William is dominated by the presence of Britain's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, and lies at the southern end of the Great Glen on the Road to the Isles. Now a major tourist centre, it developed around a fort built by Oliver Cromwell to suppress rebels during the English Civil War.

It is particularly noted for climbing, hill walking, mountain biking and sightseeing, being the finishing point for the 95-mile West Highland Way as well as the terminus of the Great Glen Way; the latter runs through the Great Glen, following the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness, to Inverness.

The movies “Rob Roy” and “Braveheart” were both filmed in the hills around the town and the West Highland Museum contains significant mementoes of ‘Bonnie' Prince Charlie – including a bed he slept in – and his Jacobite followers.

North of the town, the village of Corpach lies at the confluence of the lochs Eil and Linnhe and boasts a ‘Treasures of the Earth' museum which displays a vast collection of minerals, gemstones, fossils and crystals in cave settings.

Nearby, Neptune's Staircase is a remarkable series of eight high-rise locks on the 60-mile Caledonian Canal, built by the Victorian engineer Thomas Telford.

The gaunt remains of Inverlochy Castle a few miles away date from the 13th century. Once the seat of the Comyns, some of the surviving walls are 10 feet thick.
