Fort William and Lochaber 40 Favourite Walks

Fort William and Lochaber 40 Favourite Walks

by: Keith Fergus
With the historic town of Fort William at its heart, Lochaber boasts some of Scotland's most celebrated mountains and glens, beautiful sea lochs and, on the craggy west coast, dazzling white sandy beaches. Ben Nevis may draw the crowds, but with countless miles of lower-level paths and tracks to explore there is far more than Britain's highest mountain for walkers to enjoy in the region which lays claim to the title of 'the Outdoor Capital of the UK'.

This guide features 40 varied walks that take in the very best of Lochaber. From the iconic Glencoe and Glen Nevis to the wild lands of Ardnamurchan and Moidart, there is something for everyone in this diverse selection of routes.

Almost all the walks in this guide can be completed in half a day, leaving plenty of time to explore the natural attractions. Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, OS map reference, parking and public transport access. Clear route finding instructions follow together with coloured sketch maps. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way The walk locations are:
