Welcome To… Fort William

There’s enough in and around Fort William – the local town to Ben Nevis – to keep the average man occupied for a day. I’m an average man and it has kept me occupied until 4pm.


The campsite is at the foot of Ben Nevis itself…

…and I have a tent with a view for a couple of days. The forecast for today was OK. The forecast for tomorrow is even better. After no views from the summits of Scafell Pike and Snowdon over the last couple of weeks, I’m happy to wait if it means an increased chance of at least one summit view during my ‘Three Peaks in Three Weeks’ escapade. The upshot was a day to wander around Fort William.

Breakfast was very un-Scottish at The (pricey) Wildcat…

…and then the wandering began. An interesting bicycle hanging from the ceiling of the West Highland Museum…

…with other attractions being a walk away along the Great Glen Way…

Tomorrow: the hike to Britain’s highest point.
