There is so much to see & do In Lochaber that we could fill our whole website, so we have listed a just few that we hope you will find helpful in planning your stay here.
Lochaber is well known for its Brown Trout fishing, the season is from the 15th March to the 6th October.
Salmon fishing & Rainbow Trout seasons vary & depend on the location. We can arrange everything from learn to fly fish for beginners to full day excursions on private lochs for the experienced Angler. Remember fishing can be fun for all the family. We wish you tight lines!!
This part of Highlands is famous for its wild & rugged landscape and some of the walks can be found in the most beautiful & untouched parts of the U.K.
You don’t have to be energetic and have to climb mountains to get to spectacular places. The Forestry Commission provides us with great forest walks that are well marked and are usually circular. They have produced excellent leaflets & guides books showing all the routes in the area. We also have many shops in the town centre that will be able to provide you with books on all the walks in the area.
We sit at the bottom of Ben Nevis the highest mountain in Britain & are surrounded by dozens of Munro’s so if mountain walking is your thing you’ll be spoilt for choice here.
No matter what time of the year or how often you climb a mountain in the Highlands the views will be different every time.
Don’t worry folks just because we have the world champion down hill track here don’t be put off - we have routes & trails for everyone. You don’t even have to bring your bike with you as we have 3 shops in Fort William where you can hire everything you will need.
Now for the exciting stuff:
Why not take a 4 wheel drive safaris “if you watched Monarch of the Glen you’ll recognise the stunning views you’ll see in this trip”
Or Try your hand at Quad biking, 4 wheel drive, paintballing, or Archery.
Lets start of gently with a guided river cruise down a still river taking in the stunning scenery, or for the more adventurous there’s:-
All of the above can be obtained from reception
When winter arrives and the snow comes that’s when Nevis Range comes alive. Spend the day having a great time skiing with friends or if you’re a beginner or want to brush up on your skills why not book lessons with one of their top instructors.
You can also book lessons in telemarking, blading, and snowshoeing. They also do classes in adaptive skiing for disabled skiers.
To end the day there’s the snow goose bar - a must for a nice hot gluhwein before you take the gondola back down.
