The West Highland Line - Glasgow - Fort William railway passes close-by with train stations at Tulloch, Roy Bridge and Spean Bridge.
Just north of Roy Bridge is Tulloch, and then the Loch Laggan reservoir, part of the RioTinto Alcan Hydro Scheme and a great place to go fishing! Not too far from Roy Bridge are the Parallel Roads in Glen Roy - an interesting geological example of past glaciation in the Highlands.
Beyond Roy Bridge at the north-east end of Loch Laggan - a huge inland freshwater loch, is the Land of Monarch of the Glen. This route is a good day out to visit the Spey Valley, Inverness, Culloden, Cawdor Castle, Loch Ness, Spean Bridge from Fort William.
