The outdoor capital of the UK, Fort William is a perfect base to explore some of the Highland's most amazing views. The town sits at the ‘crossroads’ of the Highlands, this beautiful spot is close to the islands to the west and south, Loch Ness and the Highlands to the north all in the shadow of mighty Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the British Isles!

This walking holiday is all about seeing some of the most colossal Highland scenery on a variety of trails close to Fort William. You'll tackle the highest peak in Britain, Ben Nevis, see the majesty of Inchree Falls and explore the ancient hillfort of Dun Deardail in dramatic Glencoe. 


Ben Nevis by the Mountain Path

You'll tackle the highest peak in the British Isles, taking the Mountain Path to the top. While this route has no particularly difficult sections, it is still a strenuous walk and getting to the top is certainly an achievement! In winter conditions be prepared for freezing temperatures, and strong winds, wrap up warm! The payoff is fantastic though, with views as far as Northern Ireland on a clear day.

Dun Deardail Fort

This walk takes in Glencoe, known as one of the most spectacular and famous glens in Scotland. The highlight of this walk is the Iron Age hillfort of Dun Deardail which dates back over 2500 years and offers superb views of Ben Nevis nearby. A six mile walk along good terrain this should be a suitable walk for most.

Inchree Falls

Inchree Falls are a beautiful number of waterfalls set among coniferous forests, moorland and bogs. The series of eight waterfalls cascade 100 metres into a deep gorge. From here there are fantastic views of Loch Linnhe and the hills of Ardgour. 


Caledonian Hotel (primary)

  • Stay right on the shores of Loch Linnhe among some of Britain's highest peaks
  • The recently renovated restaurant and bar where you can enjoy spectacular views over the loch in real style
  • Take day trips to stunning locations such as the Isle of Skye and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

If you are looking to discover the magnificence of Scotland with scenic views from the hotel and within easy reach of the best the Highlands and Islands have to offer join us at the Caledonian Hotel.

The hotel is set in seclusion on the shores of Loch Linnhe, just a 10 minute drive from popular Fort William where you can discover Highland history at the West Highland Museum or hop on a loch cruise to take in the landscape from a different perspective. Of course, this area is renowned for the wide choice of fantastic outdoor activities available. If you are feeling particularly active try and tackle Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain which is just outside of town, or follow one of the many more leisurely trails in the area.

Venture out of town and the very best of the Highlands can be accessed on a day trip. A couple of hours drive from Fort William is the stunning Isle of Skye, an isolated island with stunning views from mountainous interiors, rolling green fields and dramatic seaside cliff faces. Or head just over an hour south to explore the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomond and the wider magnificence of the Trossachs National Park.

The scenery doesn’t stop at the hotel door, with tremendous views across Loch Linnhe from the hotel’s recently refurbished bar and lounge area. The views continue in the restaurant where you can enjoy breakfast and evening meals daily while enjoying one of Scotland’s greatest landscapes.
