Living, working & shopping in the Highlands

Fort William is situated in the middle of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. It is a smallish town, but is the population center between Glasgow and Inverness. My family lives here and I did at one time too.
More Scotland at Scotland .

Some of the best scenery in the whole wide world!

Within walking distance of Ft William is some of the best scenery in the world. It's a walkers paradise.

    What a lovely area to visit, and wonderful reflection photo's! Don't think I would be game enough to cross on the cable bridge!

    Great tips Frank - they balance my more hard edged tips! Superb pictures - realistic and beautiful. (Readers of this comment - Frank is right, the road to Mallaig is stunningly beautiful - so much better than taking the Skye bridge.)
