Fort William Things to Do: 81 reviews and 118 photos

This is about 30 minutes drive south from Fort William so is likely to be your route to or from the town.

Glencoe is the reason to be in this part of Scotland / the world, and Fort William is just the nearby main town and service centre.

Please don't rush Glencoe!!! Take an hour off from Fort William and add it to Glencoe.

Another film location for the latest Harry Potter, with Hagrid's house up above the Clachaig Inn (useful food and drink stop - shelter from midge and rain!)

Clachaig Inn - not the friendliest owners in the world. Go to the climbers bar (right hand side around the back, past the kitchens - honest!) for a more sympathetic setting, mountaineers and a wood burning stove - and food / beer / music.

Glencoe is cared for by the National Trust - Glencoe

Address: A82 - Between Fort William and Glasgow
Directions: South of Fort William, 30 minutes drive.

Train passengers will miss Glencoe - a good reason to take the bus or go on foot (West Highland Way)
