Silversea Expedition Cruises A Fort William, Scotland

Fort William, Scotland

Flanked by the UK’s tallest mountain on one side and Loch Linnae on the other, Fort William – or “Bill” to the locals – is what you imagine when it comes to Scottish Highland towns. Verdant moors stretch as far as the eye can see, pastel painted houses front the water and it is not unusual to see pipers in kilts on street corners. View more

But while Fort William may play to certain critics’ idea of a cliché, the pretty town goes far beyond tartan cushions and wee drams of Scotch (although there is a fair amount of this too!). Fort William has everything you could possibly want while in the Highlands. The High Street has plenty to keep you occupied with its good range of shops, cafes and restaurants - a lunch of locally caught seafood or the iconic haggis, neeps and tatties is a must. Because of its privileged location sitting in the shadow of the mighty Ben Nevis (standing a proud 1,345 metres high) outdoor enthusiasts are especially well catered for. Unsurprisingly so, as Fort William is considered the UK’s outdoor capital. But it’s not all high adrenaline sports. Certainly, those who want to climb up a rock or hurtle down white water rapids will find their nirvana, but if gentle fishing, a quiet county walk or curling up in cosy pubs warmed by an open fire are more your glass of whiskey then you’re catered for. The West Highland Museum in the centre of the town is excellent, while St Andrew's Church, towards the north end of the main street, has a very attractive interior. Also well worth a look is St Mary's Catholic Church, on Belford Road, and no visit should be considered complete without a look at the Old Fort, almost invisible to passing traffic. Add a wildlife cruise amid stunning scenery and the steam train that took Harry to Hogwarts and you can easily spend a day in this lovely port.

Excursões em Fort William, Scotland

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

This site is popular for its distileries, mountain sports, hiking, kayaking on the lake, biking tours, as well as a few museums.

Glorious Glenfinnan, Historic Highlands and a Dram

As a main centre for the Highlands there are plenty of local points of interest worth a visit! Explore some of these on this highlights tour of the area with your knowledgeable local guide.

Following a short overview of Fort William, travel west and after a short drive you will reach the village of Glenfinnan. Best known for the stunning railway viaduct which featured in a Harry Potter movie, it is part of the legendary West Highland Line which operates between the towns of Fort William and Mallaig. The West Highland Line itself is famous for the Jacobite Steam Train which operates during the tourist season and is often referred to as the "Hogwarts Express Line". We'll pause here for a short time, so get your cameras ready. If you're feeling adventurous, you can climb the wee hill behind the Visitor Centre for a better view of the viaduct. Opposite the Visitor Centre stands the Glenfinnan Monument, erected in 1815 as a tribute to the Jacobite clansmen who fought and died in the cause of Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

We will then re-join our coach and visit nearby Banavie where the 60-mile-long Caledonian Canal begins and ends its route across the entire country. Constructed in the early nineteenth century by Scottish engineer Thomas Telford, the Caledonian Canal connects the Scottish east coast at Inverness with the west coast at nearby Corpach. At Banavie stroll to the canal's Neptune's Staircase, the longest staircase lock in the United Kingdom.

No tour would be complete without a visit to the local whisky distillery! Ben Nevis Distillery, located at the foot of the mountain, has been operating since 1825! Enjoy a tour and tasting of the local tipple -Slàinte!

Return to your coach for the short drive to The Commando Memorial which offers breath taking views of the UK's highest mountain - Ben Nevis. The Commando Memorial is dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. Situated around a mile from Spean Bridge village, it overlooks the training areas of the Commando Training Depot established in 1942 at Achnacarry Castle. Unveiled in 1952 by the Queen Mother, it has become one of the United Kingdom's best-known monuments, both as a war memorial and as a tourist attraction.

It's then just a short transfer back to Fort William where your ship awaits you.
