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.
Go as far as you can see; when you get there you'll be able to see farther. - Thomas Carlyle
