Visit Loch Ness from Fort William
The southern shore of Loch Ness is only 38 miles from Fort William - a very scenic and pleasant short journey along the A82 towards Inverness.
The Caledonian Canal, which joins up the natural lochs in the Great Glen, cuts through the village of Fort Augustus before joining Loch Ness. From the village you can take an exciting boat trip on Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle. We highly recommend Fort Augustus village to you - it is one of the prettiest places in the Highlands, and right on the shore of Loch Ness.
Altogether a great day out in the Highlands from Fort William !
