Car, Coach and truck parking

Fort William has several parking areas for cars, coaches, caravans and trailors, and heavy goods vehicles - this page provides information about these.

Over the years we've had a number of drivers asking about car parking areas in Fort William - suitable for coaches and HGV vehicles. If you are bringing a long vehicle to Fort William there are two car parks you might like to know about. These are ideal for coaches, lorries, campers and vehicle towing. These car parks can also be used by visitors undertaking the West Highland Way or Great Glen Way, or any other activity where you might want to leave your vehicle for several days.
