Fort William is the second largest settlement in the Highlands of Scotland with around 10,000 inhabitants – and the largest town: only the city of Inverness is larger.Fort William is a major tourist centre, with Glen Coe just to the south, Aonach Mòr to the east and Glenfinnan to the west, on the Road to the Isles. Kick off your visit on the 25th (Tue): hike along Devil's Staircase, then trek along Lost Valley Trail, and then appreciate the history behind Seated Sculpture. Keep things going the next day: appreciate the history behind The Glencoe Massacre Monument, then take in the dramatic scenery at The Meeting of the Three Waters, and then enjoy some diversion at Ice Factor.

To find photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Fort William trip planner.

Getting from Edinburgh to Fort William by car takes about 3 hours. Other options: do a combination of train and bus; or take a bus. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Inverness.
