Hill Walking in the Fort William and Lochaber area
The Fort William area has some of the most amazing hills and mountain in the UK. From low-level to high-level there's are hundreds of walking routes
Fort William has a local walking group who go out most weeks and welcome new members.
Some of our advertisers offer guided walking and these are a good way to get more confidence and experience of some higher, but still mostly walking routes. If you are looking for a couple of suggestions, then we recommend the walk in Glen Nevis through to Steall Falls, and a hike up to the CIC hut on Ben Nevis from the North Face carpark in Leannachan Forest, Torlundy - there's a really good path through the forest which although starts out quite steep, soon levels off and opens up to great views of Fort William and of course The Ben.
There is so much information about walking in this area, we are reviewing how to present this to you. Essentially, local outdoor shops sell a variety of walking and guide books about the Lochaber area, and this is a good source of information.
