See & Do
The entire area of Lochaber offers it all, Majestic mountains, glorious glens and lovely lochs. Every day is different, every view is different each time you see it.
For some time now, Fort William has laid claim to the title, Outdoor Capital of the U.K. and certainly it would be difficult to find another area in Britain which has so many outdoor activities to offer whatever the season. You may think that Glencoe a mere twenty minutes away to the South, has to an extent reaped some reward for Fort William’s success. However in actual fact Glencoe has many outstanding outdoor activities of its own to offer.
However, Fort William and Glencoe is not just for the adventure seekers, the area is steeped in history, the events of which have had a major impact on the national and international scene, whether it was the Massacre of Glencoe in 1691 or in more recent times when troops from all over the Highlands and islands were billeted and trained in Achnacarry before being sent to fight in the two World Wars.
For those who seek relaxation, there’s no shortage of activities also. Take the Jacobite Steam Train, featured in the Harry Potter films, from Fort William to Mallaig passing Glenfinnan where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising. Or why not try a round of golf at the beautiful Dragon's Tooth Golf Course just across the loch. Guests at Onich Hotel have access to preferential rates - ask at reception.
For foodies, the area is spoilt for choice for places to eat out. With an abundance of fresh game and West Coast seafood, Lochaber is a foodie’s paradise. To complement your meal there are a good choice of local ales and of course whiskies.
