Corpach, Fort William

Corpach is a village community of the main Fort William township and developed around the entrance to the Caledonian Canal

The village of Corpach is on the A830 Road to the Isles which leads west towards Loch Eil, Glenfinnan and beyond to Mallaig. During Victorian times, paddle steamers sailed up Loch Linnhe into the bay at Corpach and then into the Caledonian Canal as early travellers journeyed to Loch Ness and Inverness in the north.

Corpach grew in the 1970s as incoming workers were employed at the then new Pulp and Paper Mill. The sawmill developed and expanded as it handled growing quantities of felled trees used to make pulp and supply the building industry with timber. Small industrial units as well as boat building are also part of a thriving village.

Today, Corpach enjoys a balance of industry and tourism in a rural area. Corpach lies at the entrance to the Caledonian Canal and so shipping and general marine activities are normal for a small community located next to a large navigable sea loch. The village has its own community centre and gardens. Thomas Telford Corpach Marina is due to open in 2021 with 40 berths and a coffee shop. Nearby is Snowgoose Activity Centre complete with bunkhouse accommodation.

Major employers in the village are BSW, Ferguson Transport, Boyd's Harbour and GaelForce Marine are all located along the shore of Loch Linnhe. Just outside Corpach are Nevis Bakery, All Round Signs, Campbell Plant Hire and ThistleAccess and others.

On the shore of Loch Eil just two miles from Corpach is Linnhe Holidays who operate one of the prettiest holiday parks in Scotland.

A small selection of local shops, an hotel, a restaurant service the locals and visitors. There are a large number of B & Bs, guesthouses, self-catering accommodation and bunkhouses to suit everyone and since Corpach is only 15 minutes into Fort William town centre.
