Info

A little information about Inverness & Fort William

Covering much of the Highlands, Inverness-shire is the largest county in Scotland. It covers a large mainland area and islands off the west coast including North Uist, South Uist and Harris in the Outer Hebrides, and Skye and the Small Isles in the Inner Hebrides. Inverness-shire is wild and mountainous with isolated glens and lochs and a coastline marked with long, rugged sea lochs. Through the centre is the Great Glen, containing a string of major lochs. Loch Ness is the longest, deepest and most famous of all, known for alleged sightings of the Loch Ness Monster, nicknamed Nessie. Inverness is considered the capital of the Highlands and boasts a historic centre and great shops. Inverness-shire has more than fifty Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet), including Ben Nevis (4,406 feet), the highest mountain in the British Isles. Fort William sits proudly on the shores of Loch Linnhe and is known as a gateway to Ben Nevis. The nearby Nevis Range Mountain Resort has ski runs and forest trails. In the town centre, the West Highland Museum focuses on regional life and history. The Cairngorms National Park has more mountains, forest paths, rivers, lochs, wildlife hotspots, friendly villages and distilleries than you can possibly imagine. Aviemore is a popular holiday destination for snow sports, plus walking, climbing, biking, and a whole host of other activities. The Highlands is by far the biggest whisky-producing region in Scotland and you are never far from distilleries where you can sip on a wee dram of Uisge Beatha or Water of Life; the name given by the ancient Celts to the fiery amber nectar we call Scotch
