Fort William & The Isle Of Skye
4 Days Away
Situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe and in the shadow of Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, Fort William is the largest town in the highlands. Now a bustling tourist town, the ruins of the Old Fort after which the town was named, can be found on the water’s edge, which provides an interesting history of the town.
Situated in a perfect horseshoe bay, and protected by the island of Kerrera, the town of Oban is the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ its busy port a hive of activity. Dominated by McCaig’s Tower, a walk to this folly perched on the summit of Battery Hill, is rewarded with stunning views of not only Oban but the islands which its port serves. A visit to Oban Distillery is a must, situated in the centre of the town it is the ideal way to learn about whisky, and perhaps sample a dram or two. With two cathedrals to visit, a museum, and multitude of cafés and restaurants, there is plenty to see in Oban itself, but a short stroll along the seafront to Dunollie Castle and Museum is an incredibly interesting place to discover about the history of this town and its inhabitants.
The beautiful Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, a haven for wildlife, sightings of white tailed sea eagles, otters, seals and dolphins are common. We will enjoy a visit to the bustling capital of Portree, this pretty harbour village with its pastel houses offers a delightful selection of unique shops and the opportunity to try the locally caught sea food. The more sedate Broadford is a popular spot for artists and it is easy to see why, there is a plethora of galleries catering to every taste and budget, which are well worth a visit.

Straddling the banks of Loch Linnhe and nestled at the foot of the UK’s tallest mountain peak, Ben Nevis, Fort William enjoys an idyllic setting with a wealth of scenery and wildlife that provides amazing panoramas in every direction.
It’s perhaps not surprising that the town is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts hoping to conquer the mountain, but you don’t have to scale the summit to take in the breathtaking vistas. You can enjoy the scenery from a different perspective on-board the Jacobite Steam Train, used in the Harry Potter films or hop on a boat cruise of the loch.

Oban has grown from a small quaint fishing village to a bustling harbour town and one of Scotland’s most visited coastal resorts.
The town itself lies in the basin of a crescent overlooked by its most famous landmark McCaig's Tower, a Colosseum-like folly built around 1900 as a monument to the McCaig family.
