Fort William, Highlands
Review of Fort William by R. Graham on May 18th, 2007
The town of Fort William is nothing special to look at, it rains a lot and there are too many shops selling tartan tat, but the area around it has plenty of the most outstanding mountain and loch scenery in Britain. It is also perfectly located as a centre for exploring the western highlands.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing - George Bernard Shaw
